From the 25th May, the rules around data protection are changing. The 'General Data Protection Regulation' (GDPR) regulates 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 pupil information privacy notice and our workforce privacy notice.
As part of our work to comply with the GDPR, we will also be changing some of the ways that we share information and data with you to ensure that we are compliant with the law. We will tell you about this in due course as necessary.
We will be buying in the Data Protection Officer service from the Local Authority and using their cloud system to ensure that data we share with suppliers is carefully tracked.
