GDPR and Data Protection

On the 25 May 2018, the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998 was replaced by a new law called the GDPR (the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016). This law governs how we collect, use and share people’s information and provides greater rights to individuals and control over how their information is handled by organisations, including schools.

We are taking steps to review and update our processes around how we are handling your information and have a designated data protection officer (DPO).

In the meantime you would like to know more about the GDPR and your rights, please visit the UK’s data protection regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office, using the link below.
