PLD's Privacy Policy

Classroom teachers reporting on student skill development is central to the PLD process. As schools commence the PLD tracking sheets, ‘coaching’ and support is often required directly from PLD in the initial six to twelve month period of implementation. To engage in this support, PLD requires temporary viewing access of the whole-school termly testing results in the form of tracking sheets.

De-identifying the data
As a matter of practice, PLD staff typically hide name columns and only view the testing results and refer to students as “Row 26” e.t.c., rather than by names. However, if you are concerned about sharing student names then please delete the child’s surname or shorten the name to just their initials before sharing your document with us.
Schools within Western Australia are welcome to bring their own device and data to our office and receive feedback in person. This option prevents any data being shared electronically.

Our promise to you
PLD is committed to protecting the privacy of schools and students and does not retain the testing results or pass on any information to third parties. Any information or data that you share with us is only used by trained PLD staff for the purposes defined at the time of the collection and is kept strictly confidential.

Raising queries or concerns
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about data protection at PLD please email us at
