From 25th 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 an update to our privacy notice, and our Data Protection Policy. These will be available soon.
As part of our work to comply with the GDPR, we will also be re-seeking consent for various activities, photo permissions, and websites that pupils may access at school and the information shared with them, confidentially and securely.
More information will follow shortly.
