Data Protection and GDPR

Introduction

On 25th May 2018, the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998 was replaced by a new law called the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016 (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.

Privacy Policies

We have reviewed and updated our processes around how we use your information. As part of this process we have updated our Privacy Notices, a document which outlines what information we hold on you and your child; what we are going to do with this information and who it will be shared with. A Privacy Notice also explains what rights you may have in relation to GDPR and how to exercise them.

Please find below a copy of our latest Privacy Notice as it relates to Students and Parents.
