On 25th May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will replace the Data Protection Act 1998.
The GDPR requires public authorities and businesses to identify the lawful basis for storing personal data, audit information we already hold and consider the way that any data will be used in future.
It also introduces new individual rights relating to personal data, such as the right to erasure or the right to rectification.
Due to this, it is important that we keep comprehensive and up to date records on our students and their contact information. This is particularly important in times of an emergency. If you change any telephone numbers please let school know.
To learn more about the General Data Protection Regulation, please visit the Information Commissioner’s Office website on http://ico.org.uk
You will find all policies associated with data protection, including how we meet the GDPR below.
