GDPR and Data Protection

In 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 have taken steps to review and update our processes around how we are handling your information and have a designated Data Protection Officer (DPO).

This statement confirms that, at Burlington Infant and Nursery School, we do not store or process any form of biometric data, such as fingerprints or retina scans.  If the school does decide to store or process biometric data, a policy will be implemented for the processing of such data, which would be made available on this school website. Any changes made to the school’s position on the processing of biometric data will be clearly communicated to all staff, parents and pupils.

If you have any questions about this statement, please contact the DPO via our school office by emailing

In the meantime if 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.
