General Data Protection Regulation 2018
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018 came into effect on 25 May 2018. 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 erase or the right to rectification. Due to this it is important that we keep comprehensive and up to date records on our pupils and their contact information. This is particularly essential in times of an emergency or where a school wide message requires your attention. Please assist us in keeping contact details up to date by informing the office immediately of any changes.
