You may be aware that from 25 May 2018, the rules around data protection are changing. The 'General Data Protection Regulation' (GDPR) will change how we can use your personal data and keep it safe, and will also strengthen your rights over your own data.
The point of this 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, so we need to make a few changes at the school in order to ensure we continue to remain compliant.
One of these changes is that we have updated our privacy notice. This can be found on our website within the Parents section.
As part of our work to comply with the GDPR, we are also re-seeking consent for a number of things such as the use of photos, medical consent, etc. The information in this form will be used throughout your child’s time at our school. You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting the school in writing. The form can be found at the link below and will need to be completed by parents of every child in school please and it is essential that every child is represented. Thank you for your time in completing it.
If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you, or how our school is preparing, you can contact either Mrs Fawdry or staff in the school office. More information about GDPR will be released after the holiday and the GDPR regulations apply to content that we publish from this date.
