General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
What is GDPR and how does this affect our us?
You may be aware that from May 2018, the rules around data protection changed. GDPR will change how we can use your personal data and keep it safe and will also strengthen your rights over your own data.
The point of this new law is to make sure sensitive or private information about yourselves and your children stays safe. Whilst it is similar to the current Data Protection Act in many ways, there are a few differences, so we need to make a few changes at the school in order to ensure we remain compliant. One of these changes is that we have updated our privacy notice which can be accessed by clicking on the link below.
GDPR imposes a strict ‘opt-in’ policy. This means that consent must be clearly given by parents/carers. As part of our work to comply with the GDPR, we are also re-seeking consent for some of the information we require at school.
If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you, or how our school is preparing, you can contact Mrs Haselwood, our School Business Manager and designated Data Protection Officer or Mr Cash who will be more than happy to discuss the changes with you.
