General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
What is GDPR?
This is a European Directive that will be brought into UK law with an updated Data Protection Act for May 2018.
We are currently working hard to make sure we are compliant in all areas.
If you have any questions please contact Mrs Plant, the Business Manager.
The Governing Board have a continuous rolling programme of reviewing and amending our school policies.Therefore our policies will be updated to be GDPR compliant as they are reviewed as part of the process.
Key Worker Information
In order to comply with the Government’s guidance with regard to shutting schools and providing places for key worker children, it is necessary for us to collect and manage data about these children and their parents/carers in a different way.
Our standard GDPR policy applies, and information found on our privacy notices relating to staff, parents and of course pupils will apply in all cases.
We will use the information that relates to key workers in order to ensure that those children who are entitled to a place at school whilst schools are officially closed are correctly processed, managed and safeguarded.
The Data Controller continues to take its obligations to data processing seriously and will ensure that appropriate safeguards and measures are in place.
