A student record is held for 25 years from the date of birth of the student. The information contained within this record includes some correspondence between outside agencies and parents and the school. However, the information held on the student must be relevant and pertinent and not all information relating to a student is retained.
Self-registering information is held for two years.
|2014 to 2015||92% |
|2015 to 2016||92.6%|
It is not possible to record the number of students that go off the school site as it is not authorised and, therefore, unknown. The information is not held.
Haute Vallee School require all students to sign out when they leave the school site during school hours.

|2015 to 2016||1,272|
Please note that the data above represents all students that have signed out to leave school premises. The reasons for leaving the school site include visits to doctors, dentists, returning home to collect forgotten kits or equipment or workbooks.
The Education Department has determined that to provide data relating only to collecting equipment / kit is exempt under Article 16 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011, as it is estimated that it will take in excess of 12.5 hours to collate the information.
The Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2005 provides individuals the right to find out what information is held about them. This is called the right of subject access.
