General Data Protection Regulations
Changes to data protection law
THIS PAGE WILL BE COMPLETED SHORTLY
You may be aware that from May 2018, the rules around data protection have changed. The 'General Data Protection Regulation' (GDPR) has changed how we can use your personal data and keep it safe, and has also strengthened your rights over your own data.
The point of this 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.
As part of our work to comply with the GDPR, we are also re-seeking consent for using photographs or videos of your child on our website, internal displays or other school materials. We will also be seeking consent for other items. We have enclosed this form , and would appreciate it if you filled this out and returned it to the school office if you have not already done so.
If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you, or how our school is preparing, you can contact our school Data Protection OFficer (DPO).
