Dear Academies Enterprise Trust,
we write to ask regards the Coronavirus surveillance measures in schools in the Trust.

Please can you provide the following information, under the FOI Act 2000. Please confirm which measures are being used in which school.

a) The name of any commercial supplier and brand of any surveillance equipment for the surveillance process, including for the capture, processing or retention of information about temperature, symptoms, or that could make reference to Coronavirus and a child, their family or member of staff. Please state which technology; such as but not only, thermal cameras, equipment to measure individual temperature, or software systems.

b) Any impact assessment. For example, whether the method of monitoring is justified should involve:
-- establishing the benefits of the method of monitoring;
-- considering any alternative method of monitoring; and
-- weighing these benefits against any adverse impacts on students or staff.

c) Please list any types of personal data that will be recorded for the purposes of coronavirus surveillance of staff, families, or pupils. (ie name, date of birth, class, family with symptoms etc)

d) Whether you are or may consider using analysis of already existing CCTV cameras to process footage as part of Coronavirus surveillance measures.

e) Please also include and list any measures that do not retain personal data but that aim to identify risk, for example, temperature checks without making a recording of any result against an individual.

Thank you for your consideration and time.
