Dear Parent/Carer

Re: Post 16 Studies

As part of our continued support for students and their future endeavours, students will soon begin to complete applications for their post-16 studies. In the past students have found great benefit completing a local online system 'Lincs2' that allows them to apply to several post-16 suppliers and courses at the same time.

Due to recent changes to the GDPR law permission is needed from parents/careers in order to share this information with local colleges and sixth forms. The information supplied will include:

  • Unique Learner Number (ULN)
  • Full name (forename and surname)
  • Date of birth
  • School/Academy that the student attends

The legal basis for this is Article 6 1 e of the General Data Protection Regulation, necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

Please complete and return the attached slip to Mrs Wigham.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact Mrs Wigham or Mr Hughes-Jones at the Academy.

Yours faithfully

Mrs E Wigham
