On the 25th May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will replace the Data Protection Act 1998. The GDPR requires public authorities and businesses to identify the lawful basis for storing personal data, audit information we already hold and take a ‘data protection by design and default’ approach to personal data. It also introduces new individual rights relating to personal data, such as the right to erasure or the right to rectification. Due to this, it is important that we keep comprehensive and up-to-date records of our students and their contact information. This is particularly essential in times of an emergency or where a school-wide message requires your attention.
To find out more information about this, please visit our website and look at the more detailed document that relate to the GDPR. If you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
