Changes to Data Protection Law

You may be aware that from 25th May 2018, the rules around Data Protection are changing. The ‘General Data Protection Regulation’ (GDPR) will change how we can use your personal data and keep it safe, and will also strengthen your rights over your own data.

As a school we want 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.  It is not a requirement for you to sign a copy of this, we have to make this available for you to read.   You can find a copy of this on the menu of this page.

In addition, we are asking all parents of our school to consent again to the use of photos in our school. Parents have received this via our App, however there is a paper copy of the form available on the menu on this page.

We have also made changes to our Data Protection Policy which can be found on our Policies page.  

 

If you have any questions regarding the GDPR please feel free to contact us.
