Data Protection Act 2018
As a school we hold a lot of information (data) about our pupils and staff which we have always treated with great care, in accordance with the requirements of the Data Protection Act. It is vitally important that this private, and sometimes sensitive information is only passed on when there is a legal requirement to do so, such as the School’s Census or when it is required for the education or employment purposes.
You may be aware that the Data Protection Act 1998 has been replaced by new Europe wide legislation called the General Data Protection Regulation. In practice, our processes and systems for handling personal data will change very little as we already treat it with great care. However, the new GDPR does require organisations, including schools, to clearly inform anyone whose data they hold what it is used for and who it is shared with.
Please see details of our updated Privacy Notices, Policies and Procedures.
