Dear Jen Persson 

 

Thank you for your request for information, which was received on
06/04/2019 00:00 . You requested for the Department to provide the
following information regards the Multiplication tables check, as per
guidance published on April 1, 2019:

  

1. The Data Protection Impact Assessment

2. Any initial information summarised for the purposes of application to
the ICO regards formal consultation under GDPR Article 36(4).

 

You also requested for the dates on which they were created.

 

I have dealt with your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
(“the Act”).

 

Please find attached the Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) relating
to the Multiplication Tables Check (MTC) at Annex A. We will, of course,
be reviewing the current DPIA in advance of the MTC becoming statutory in
the 2019/20 academic year.

 

An MTC Privacy Notice has been issued to schools and is also available on
the MTC system. The Privacy Notice can be found attached at Annex B.

In accordance with Article 36(4) of the General Data Protection Regulation
(GDPR), the STA consulted the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) to
prepare new secondary legislation which relates to the processing of
personal data involved in the MTC. The initial information summarised for
the purposes of application to the ICO regards formal consultation under
Article 36(4) of the GDPR can be found attached at Annex C. The ICO have
subsequently confirmed that they do not require further consultation with
the department on the data implications arising from the introduction of
the MTC. 

If you have any queries about this letter, please contact us. Please
remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.

If you are unhappy with the way your request has been handled, you should
make a complaint to the Department by writing to us within two calendar
months of the date of this letter. Your complaint will be considered by an
independent review panel, who were not involved in the original
consideration of your request. 

If you are not content with the outcome of your complaint to the
Department, you may then contact the Information Commissioner’s Office.
