Senior School Induction

 The Senior School Induction was held on theThursday 21st August at the City Chambers in Glasgow. Our new senior pupils were given invaluable advice from several experts on their chosen careers. We recieved excellent comments from all of our speaks on the conduct of all of our pupils.


Education Services Privacy



As the local authority our schools and early years establishments process information about children and young people in order to help administer education and care. In doing so we must comply with the Data Protection Act (1998).

This means (amongst other things) that the data held about children and young people must only be used for specific purposes allowed by law. The following information explains the types of data held, why that data is held, and to whom it may be passed on.

Types and use of data

Data held by schools and educational establishments includes contact details, curriculum assessment results, attendance information, characteristics such as ethnic group, additional support needs and any relevant medical information.

Our data includes information about individuals for whom it provides services, and the details of services provided. This data helps us:

  • support learning and teaching
  • monitor and report on progress
  • provide appropriate pastoral care
  • assess how well the school/establishment and Council are doing as a whole
  • monitor progress and develop good practice in the services received
  • carry out specific functions (such as social care)
  • to evaluate and develop education policy and strategies

In addition, we may use this information for other legitimate purposes and may share this information where necessary with other bodies responsible for administering services to children and young people or where otherwise required by law.

Data rights and access

As a data subject (or the parent of a data subject), you have certain rights under the Data Protection Act, including a general right to be given access to personal data held by any data controller.

The presumption is that by the age of 12 a child has sufficient maturity to understand their rights and to make an access request themselves if they wish. If you are a parent of a child younger than 12, you would normally be expected to make a request on their behalf.

The Council may use this information for other legitimate purposes and may share this information where necessary with other bodies responsible for administering services to children and young people or where otherwise required by law. The Council also has a duty to protect the public funds it administers, and to this end it may use the information you have provided for the prevention and detection of fraud.

We have recently created a careers section on our website, on it you will find lots of information about available opportunities.

The Careers page is available here.




Bellahouston Academy enjoys very good working relationship with our pupils’ parents and carers. Parent involvement is very much valued and respected by our teaching staff as it is clearly of huge benefit to pupil learning.

We realise that all parents and carers want the same: to help, protect, and get a good education for their children. However, sometimes parents and carers may face difficulties accessing school support or in attending parents’ meetings or in to making appointments with their child’s Pastoral Care Teacher. We also understand that there may be a whole range of barriers to better communication and contact with the school, some of these works – related.

I am writing to you to give you some information on a pilot programme to reduce some of these barriers, and to make time to welcome our pupils’ families into Bellahouston Academy.

From December 2013, parents and carers of all our pupils will be invited to take part in a “drop in “ scheme whereby mothers, fathers and carers can meet with a Principal Teacher of Pastoral Care to discuss any matters relating to their child and the school. No appointment will be necessary.

We would welcome the opportunity just to meet you and chat with you about your child and your child’s progress in school.

The “drop in” scheme will operate every week at the following times:
