GDPR and School Health Surveys

This letter provides advice on the lawful basis under the GDPR for children’s personal information to be used for height and weight measurements, dental surveys and vaccinations in primary schools.

The key message is that no change is needed to the current ways in which children’s personal information is used and shared for these primary school health data collections to be lawful under GDPR.

 If there are any queries relating to this then please contact Walsall Council public health department.
