My daughter is refusing to tell me her GCSE exam results. I have just contacted the school, which is actually named as an academy, to ask for access to her records and they have informed me that, as my daughter is 16, she has to consent to the information being released. Is this the case, or am i covered under the Education (Pupil Information) (England) Regulations 2000 ?
Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

I’m ok to continue waiting please

Hi thank you for your message, at that general age under something called Gillick Competence it is generally accepted that children are competent to make decisions for themselves. Unfortunately the Education (Pupil Information) (England) Regulations 2000 would not aid you in this regard because it does not apply to academies. I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
