On the 25 May 2018, the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998 was 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. Our new Data Protection Officer can be contacted through firstname.lastname@example.org
Please see below our Privacy Notice and Data Protection Policy (which are in the process of being updated) explaining how we handle pupil information, what rights you have and how to exercise them and our policies around this.
If in the meantime you would like to know more 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 queries regarding the GDPR and our school, please email us at email: email@example.com
