Data Protection and GDPR
On the 25th May 2018, the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998 is being replaced by a new law called the GDPR (the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016). 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 have taken steps to review and update our processes around how we are handling your information to help us get ready for the changes. As part of this process we are required to update 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 updated Privacy Notice as it relates to Students and Parents.
If you would like to know further information about the GDPR and your rights, please visit the UK’s data protection regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office at www.ico.gov.uk. Should you have any further questions as regards the Privacy Notice attached please direct these to email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
