GDPR and Privacy Notices
A notice about how and why we store personal data
GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) came into force across all sectors on 25th May 2018. You can find out more at https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/guide-to-the-general-data-protection-regulation-gdpr/
GDPR applies to ‘personal data’ meaning any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified.
As a school, we hold lots of data about staff, governors, children and families and this can include names, dates of birth, addresses, email addresses and more. This makes us a ‘data controller’ and we are registered under the ICO (Information COmmissioners Office). As a 'data controller' we are required to be careful about the way we store, share and keep safe this personal data and you are entitled to give us consent to do so. We comply with the Data Protection Act and General Data Protection Regulations.
