General Data Protection Regulations
Important changes to data protection law:
You may be aware that from 25th May 2018, the rules around data protection changed. The 'General Data Protection Regulation' (GDPR) have changed how we can use your personal data and keep it safe, and 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 needed to make a few changes at the school in order to ensure we remained compliant.
Below is a short animation for parents and carers to explain, in brief, how GDPR affects your school.
We have also published below further information relevant documents.
