From May 25th 2018 new data protection laws come into force with which the school must be compliant. We are in the process of completing data mapping so that we can confidently inform all our stakeholders (children, parents, staff, governors and volunteers) about what data we hold about them and how this data is shared with other providers.
We will also be changing some of the ways that we share information and data with you to ensure that we are compliant with the law. We will tell you about this in due course as necessary.
We will be buying in the Data Protection Officer service from the Local Authority and using their cloud system to ensure that data we share with suppliers is carefully tracked.
We are updating our data protection policy which we will be publishing on our website, however in the meanwhile, you need to know that some information we will need your consent for, other information we do not. If we need data and information on a lawful basis then we will not need to ask for consent. Should you need to give your consent, you also have a right to withdraw this at anytime.
The new GDPR legislation also enables you to access what data and information is held on you/ your child. You can make a Subject Access Request if you should need to see this information. Under the new Act, there is no longer a charge for this service. Requests would need to be put in writing to Mrs Bradley-Wyatt.
You can find more information about GDPR here.
Privacy Notices- these explain what data we hold on you/ your child and where this information is shared with any third parties. These will be constantly reviewed and revised. The first privacy notice is for parents, the second is for anyone who is working at the school.
