I wish it to be known that I DO NOT give consent for my child (CHILD'S NAME) to be tracked and traced in accordance with the wishes of the School and/or Local Education Authority. Tracking and Tracing is not mandatory and does not exist in law.
I also wish it to be known and understood that as from the date appearing on this document – that at no time whatsoever should my child be treated differently, prejudiced against and/or disadvantaged due to my refusal to give consent to the school's Tracking & Tracing programme. It is suffice that my child is recorded as present and absent by way of the School's pupil register which monitors the presence of my child at the school.
I wish it to be known that should the school at any time show discrimination, disadvantage and/or threaten discrimination towards my child, I would kindly remind you that this is unlawful and will be liable for prosecution and applicable fines in accordance with my child's human rights.
I wish the school to be advised that should my child at any time be treated differently to their peers for removing consent and my refusal of tracking and tracing my child, this matter will be addressed in a court of law in accordance with my child's human rights.
