GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation
On 25th May 2018 the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998 is being replace by a new law called GDPR. This law governs how we collect, use and share people’s information and provides greater rights to individuals and control over how their information is handled by organisations, including schools.
We’re taking steps to review and up date our processes around how we are handling your information and have appointed an external Data Protection Officer, to help us get ready for the changes. We will publish more information about how we are meeting the GDPR in due course. A new privacy notice has been sent out to all families explaining how we handle pupil information, what rights you have and how to exercise them and our policies around this.
If you would like to know more about the GDPR and your rights, please visit the UK’s data protection regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office at https://ico.org.uk/
