CHANGES TO DATA PROTECTION LAW – GDPR
You may be aware that from 25 May 2018 the rules around data protection are changing. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will change how we can use personal data and keep it safe and will also strengthen 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 school in order to ensure we remain compliant.
One of these changes is that we have updated our Privacy Notice which contains important information about how the school uses personal information about yourselves and your children. Click here to view the updated Privacy Notice.
As part of our work to comply with the GDPR we are also having to review the consent you have previously given for your child in school and as such all parents/carers need to complete a new consent form by Monday 4 June 2018. Click here to view new consent form.
Should you have any queries or questions regarding this in the meantime please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to help.
Many thanks for your continued support.
