What we do

Yellowbird Education (Yellowbird, the Company) offers fun and engaging workshops for children to develop skills in Creative Writing, Handwriting, Comprehension, and Discursive Writing. We have extensive knowledge of the British school system and offer advice, practice and support to children preparing for 7+, 8+ and 11+ independent school entrance exams. This privacy notice explains how we use any personal information we collect about you when you use this website and when you interact with us.

What information do we collect about you?

Yellowbird Education receives and holds personal data on clients (parents and students) in order to support achievement of their goals. That data may include: 

  • Personal details such as home address, email address, date of birth and next of kin. 
  • Information concerning a child’s performance at school, including school reports and examinations reports. 
  • Medical records and information, including details of any illnesses, allergies or other medical conditions suffered by a child. 
  • Financial information including information about the payment of fees to Yellowbird. 

How do we collect this information?

We obtain this information directly from our clients and students. Our clients complete forms online, email us, provide information verbally or complete hardcopy documents. We also collect educational information and work examples as a result of our students completing our workshops.

How will we process your personal information?

“Processing” is a catch-all term and means obtaining or recording information or carrying out any operation on the information such as storing or using the information. Yellowbird Education processes information about you and your child in order to register for courses, to safeguard and promote the welfare of your child, to facilitate the normal operation of the Company and ensure that all relevant legal obligations of the Company are complied with. 

Also, if you give your consent, we will email you from time to time about other products and services we think may be of interest to you. 

Do we share personal information with third parties?

Necessary information will be shared with relevant people only. For example, child’s name, emergency contact details, educational and medical information will be shared with workshop tutors, so that staff are aware of students’ particular educational needs and will be able to respond appropriately in the event of a medical emergency. 

Yellowbird also works alongside Janie Richardson School Search & Placement (JR School Search) to assist students gaining entry to London schools. If it is relevant or necessary to share information with JR School Search, we will seek permission from our Yellowbird client.

If it is deemed necessary in the professional opinion of the Directors to share information with otherthird parties, we will seek the client’s permission to do this.

Yellowbird will not share personal information with other external companies for marketing purposes.

Personal information is kept electronically on the company’s information management system (Google Drive), on employee computers and laptops or as hard copies in a filing system in our office. This can only be accessed by employees who have signed and agreed to our company Data Protection Policy.
