Info: SEEMiS and Non Highland Council Staff
Please see our up to date guidance on External Teaching Staff below. This is also available in the staff manual.
In some Secondary Schools lecturers from the University or College will provide teaching for courses in the school.
As these staff are not employed by the Highland Council, access must not be granted to any personal pupil or staff information under GDPR (General Data Protection and Regulation). Therefore staff not employed by the Highland Council must not have access to the SEEMiS System.
Whereby a person who is not employed by Highland Council requires to take pupil registration, a paper register should be supplied. The school office can then be timetabled against the class and would in-put the registration on the lecturer’s behalf. The Mrs Time Table dummy records should not be used for this purpose.
