My sons primary school have taken my sons Biometric data, after we returned a slip refusing consent!
We returned the slips for our 4 & 7 year olds & today they scanned my sons thumb &
Processed the information onto their system.
we are going into the school tomorrow to deal with this, I am of the belief that they have broken the law (protection of freedoms act 2012)
Maybe someone on here with more knowledge knows more, but I will keep this topic updated as we proceed, (we are seriously considering seeing a solicitor)
Welcome to the Forum.
These two recent topics are relevant:
One the Protection of Freedom Act (as you cited): viewtopic.php?f=51&t=36774
On the Dept. for Education draft guidance to schools on how to comply with the Act: viewtopic.php?f=51&t=36857
Do please let us know how you get on when you talk to the school. It sounds as though they haven't got a leg to stand on.
