Changes to data protection law
You may be aware that from May 2018, 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 has also strengthened 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 previous Data Protection Act in many ways, there are a few differences.
One of these changes is that we have updated our privacy notice. Please see the document attached below.
We have recently re-seeked consent for using photos and videos of your child for various purposes. We will do this annually. If at any time you wish to review your child’s preferences please contact the school office team and we will be happy to assist you. If you do not complete the form we will assume that you do not consent to any images of your child being used.
If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you, or how our school is preparing, you can contact Alison McHugh in the school office.
