As a provider of services for Kingston, Richmond and Windsor & Maidenhead local authorities, Achieving for Children (along with other agencies such as schools and early years settings) processes information about children, young people and families in order to help administer education and service provision. In doing so we must comply with the Data Protection Act (1998) and Human Rights Act 1998.
This means (amongst other things) that the data held about people must only be used for specific purposes allowed by law. The following information explains the types of data held, why that data is held, and to whom it may be passed on.

- monitor progress and develop good practice in the services received;
- carry out specific functions (such as social care and electoral services); and
- support children’s/young people’s teaching and learning.
This data includes personal characteristics, contact details, details of family and close relations, school curriculum assessment results and attendance information, characteristics such as ethnic group, special educational needs and any relevant medical information.
