Protection of Biometric Information of Children in Schools
This new advice to schools will make clear that they will no longer be able to use pupils’ biometric data without parental consent. The advice comes into effect from September 2013. The purpose of this DfE advice is to explain the legal duties schools and colleges have if they use automated biometric recognition systems.
