About this resource
The GDPR states that only parents/carers who hold Parental Responsibility can give consent for their child- including consent for information to be held about them.
This document explains what you need to know. You will also need to ask parents/carers to show you the documentation that proves they do hold Parental Responsibility for the child. It is good practice to record which documents you have seen regarding this. You can either make a note of this or use our GDPR Parental Responsiblity Evidence Form to record the information.
