At Berkeley Guardians, we understand all students, whether under or over 18, should primarily be treated like an adult would in terms of Data Protection. The only exceptions would be those with severe learning difficulties, school link students (those on roll with a school) and those who are otherwise unable to decide for themselves.
However, we are also keen to keep parents/carers/ guardians informed and, whilst they are not automatically entitled to the information we seek consent from students to share information with them.
