General Data Protection Regulations
You may be aware that from May, the rules around data protection are changing. The ‘General Data Protection Regulation’ (GDPR) will change how we can use personal data relating to you and your child and keep it safe. It will also strengthen your rights over this personal data.
The point of this is to make sure sensitive or private information about you and your child 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.
This area of our website informs you about the implementation of The General Data Protection Regulations.
Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we:
- must provide the information free of charge
- must comply within 1 month
- should provide the information in a commonly used electronic format, if the request was made electronically
