New regulations concerning data protection will be operational from May 25th 2018. Below you will find important documents related to this.
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 your personal data and keep it safe, and will also strengthen your rights over your own data.
The point of this is to make sure sensitive or private information about yourselves and your children 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 the school in order to ensure we remain compliant.
One of these changes is that we have updated our privacy notice (see below).
We are requesting that all parents review their digital concent.

If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you, or how our school is preparing, you can contact Ms Sarah Joskey, Headteacher. We are currently appointing a school Data Protection Officer, whom you will also be able to contact in due course.
