Jackie Palmer Stage School Privacy Policy: We are compliant with the new GDPR which came into force 25th May 2018. We ensure that we protect the child’s and their parents’ data accordingly.   Our Privacy Policy has been written in order that children can understand what information we hold and how we use this information.

The Jackie Palmer Stage School provides classes in every aspect of performing Arts – these include Dance – Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Acrobatic, Street and Commercial; Drama; and Singing.  The classes are for 3 – 18 year olds.   Boys have separate classes to girls, with the exception of show rehearsals and our drama only class.     The pupils perform shows to the general public in theatres, as well as school halls, and including open air Fetes.

We take your privacy seriously and so the only data we take is necessary for us, to conduct our business.   We will never sell your information but we may have to share some information with another professional body in order to, for example enter pupils for exams.

The information we hold, has been collated from forms completed when applying for the school. This includes names dates of Birth, telephone numbers and email addresses. Then when a child joins the school additional information such as addresses, biometric data (hair & eye colour) and any medical information the parent feels we should know about as it may affect their ability in class or in the school environs.  As well as signed permission to record our shows, which are then used for training purposes or for parents private home use. We ask that parents keep us informed of any relevant changes to the data, so we always have the most up to date information.

We only gather and retain information that we actually need.   We need this data to be able to communicate with parents/guardians and children; for our teaching staff to be aware medical information which might be relevant, and to pass on to exam bodies when the children are taking exams. We only deal with official exam bodies all of whom have to be compliant with the new GPDR standards. Any details we are given from credit cards in order to pay fees is immediately destroyed after the fees have been taken.

Electronic data is held on a secure private network, where everything is password protected. Hard copy information is held within a private, secure, alarmed office. When pupils leave the school, this information is destroyed/deleted in line with regulations.

For those Jackie Palmer Stage School pupils who also join the Jackie Palmer Agency, please look at our JPA Associates Privacy policy, which can be found on our JPA Associates website. On joining the agency you would be made aware of the additional data we collect such as bank details so we can pay for work carried out by the children, Birth Certificates and letters of permission from their day schools in order to be able to apply for Performance licences. We have to share additional data with casting directors, producers and production companies, all of whom would need to be GDPR compliant.  If your child then leaves the Agency the data is deleted in line with current regulations, but we will need to retain minimum contact details, bank details and contracts to ensure that we can continue to pay any residual/repeat monies.
