You may be aware that from 25 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 all this is to make sure sensitive or private information about yourselves and your children stays safe. It is similar to the current Data Protection Act in many ways, but there are a few differences, so we need to make a few changes at the school in order to ensure we remain compliant. There is also a new Data Protection Bill going through Parliament at the moment, but it has not been agreed yet.
One of these changes is that we have updated our privacy notice for student, parents and carers regarding use of pupil data.
