Changes to data protection law
You may be aware that from May, the rules around data protection are changing. The 'General Data Protection Regulation' (GDPR) will change how we can use your personal data and keep it safe, and will also strengthen 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 need to make a few changes at the school in order to ensure we remain compliant.
In the coming weeks we will be sending you a letter to re-seek consent for using photographs of your child on our website, in school etc.
If you have any questions about how GDPR affects you, or how the school is preparing, you can contact Claire Patterson, School Business Manager, in the school office.
