General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

Gebneral Data Protection Regulations
 
Under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), individuals have a right to be informed about how the school uses any personal data that we hold about them. Schools use a variety of personal data as part of their work and we take great care to ensure that this information is kept safe and secure. Personal data includes things like names, addresses and age, information that we need in order to comply with our statutory role in educating pupils. Most of this data is essential and does not require your consent to use it. Some personal data is not essential and for that, depending on age, we require the consent of either the pupil or parent. An example of the kind of data that needs consent would be using pupil photographs on the school website.
