You may be aware that the rules around data protection have changed. The ‘General Data Protection Regulation’ (GDPR) has changed how we can use your personal data and keep it safe, and also strengthens 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 are making a few changes at the school in order to ensure we remain compliant.
One of these changes is that we have updated our privacy notice. The updated notices for staff, parents/carers and pupils are available here:
As part of our work to comply with the GDPR, we will be re-seeking consent for using photographs or videos of your child on our website, internal displays, social media and local press. We will also be re-seeking your consent to use email and text messaging to stay in contact with you.
If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you, you can contact the school office or our Data Protection Officer:
