General Data Protection Regulation….


The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a piece of EU-wide legislation which will determine how people’ s personal data is processed and kept safe, and the legal rights individuals have in relation to their own data. ‘ Personal data ‘ means information that can identify a living individual. The regulation will apply to all schools from 25 May 2018.

 The GDPR is similar to the Data Protection Act (DPA) 1998 (which schools already comply with), but strengthens many of the DPA’s principles.

As a result we have adapted our Privacy Notice to ensure we are compliant – a copy of which can be found by clicking on this link.

Should you require any further information please contact the School Office.
