Data Protection Law
From 25th May 2018, the rules around data protection changed. The 'General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) changed how we can use your personal data and keep it safe.
The point of this regulation 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, which required a few changes at school in order to ensure we remain compliant.
One of the changes that we have made is to update our Privacy Notice, which replaces the Data Protection-Fair Processing Notice that you were given upon entry to the school.
You can view our Privacy Notice by clicking on the following link Privacy Notice - Parents and Pupils
Upon entry to the school, we asked you to give permission for us to undertake certain actions which we feel are essential to the smooth running of the school: these are listed below and are still valid.
- Home School Agreement
- Educational Visits Permission Form
- Internet Acceptable Use Agreement
A new 'Photo Consent' form has been put in place which all parent/Carers must complete for their child. Once completed this form will remain in place for the duration of your child's time at school. If at any time you wish to withdraw this consent a 'Photo consent Withdrawl' form will need to be completed. A copy of both of these forms can be downloaded from the links below
