Personal information charter

Our personal information charter contains the standards you can expect from DfE when we ask for and hold your personal information.

OSA and your data

We collect personal information to enable us to carry out our legal duties and functions. We collect this information mainly from you but sometimes from other bodies such as schools or local authorities.

Read our privacy notices for information about the data we hold:

All OSA staff and all adjudicators receive training on how to handle personal information confidentially. We will only keep your information for as long as necessary after which point we will securely destroy it.
