(a) any parent or guardian may seek access to personal information collected about their child.

(b) the school may, at its discretion, on the request of a student, grant that student access to information held by the school about them, or allow a student to give or withhold consent to the use of their personal information, independently of their parents or guardians. This would normally be done only in exceptional circumstances. Where this occurs, we may not notify the relevant parents or guardians.
