GDPR

What is GDPR?

General Data Protection Regulation

 

Things are changing! 

 The GDPR will apply in all EU member states from 25 May 2018. This will affect how schools manage personal data and how this is protected and shared.

 

The EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the result of four years of work by the EU to bring data protection legislation into line with new, previously unforeseen ways that data is now used.

 

Currently, the UK relies on the Data Protection Act 1998, which was enacted following the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive, but this will be superseded by the new legislation. It introduces tougher fines for non-compliance and breaches, and gives people more say over what companies can do with their data. It also makes data protection rules more or less identical throughout the EU.

 

We have updated our Privacy Notices, policies and Consent Forms to make sure we are compliant with the new GDPR.

 

Check regularly on this section to see what is new.

General Data Protection Regulations – 25th May (GDPR)

To prepare for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into force on 25th May 2018 all organisations handling personal data, including schools, need to have the right governance measures. This school has developed and revised policies and processes for data management, from collecting and handling the data through to the ability to respond quickly and appropriately to data breaches. Today you will receive a revised Privacy Notice, that complies with GDPR and which we would like you to sign and return after the half term break. Please visit the new GDPR section of our school website to become familiar with policies and processes for managing data in this school. We have a named Data Protection Officer, (DPO) Mr John Cook and contact details for him are listed on the website in our Data Protection Policy.
