HWB CONSENT FORM TO ALLOW LEARNERS ACCESS TO ADDITIONAL SERVICES
The Hwb platform provides all maintained schools in Wales with access to a wide range of centrally funded, bilingual digital tools and resources to support the digital transformation of classroom practices. The Hwb platform is managed and operated by the Welsh Government.
All learners in maintained schools in Wales must be provided with a secure log-in to the Hwb platform. This is because mandatory reading and numeracy tests, currently on paper, will be moving online and must be completed by each pupil via the platform. In order to provide [you / your child] with a secure log-in, the school will be sending basic information to the Welsh Government. The log-in will allow [you/your child] to take the mandatory online assessments, known as ‘personalised assessments’.
For more information about the Hwb platform and how information about [you / your child] is used, please see https://hwb.gov.wales/privacy
