You may be aware that from May, 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 remain compliant.
One of these changes is that we will be updating our privacy notice. This will be available on our website.
As part of our work to comply with the GDPR, we have already sent out a recent parent consent form (using photographs or videos of your child on the website, internal displays, and other consent materials) but, if you would like to check the consent given, or make any changes please contact us at the school office.
If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you, or how our school is preparing, you can contact the school office.
