General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

11th June 2018

11th June, 2018

 Dear Parents and Carers, 

As I’m sure you are aware, from the 25th May 2018 new regulations were introduced which affect how our school handles people’s data. This is called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Compliance with the regulations will be an ongoing process and we have appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO) to advise and manage compliance with the regulation. Full details of our data protection officer can be found on our website should you have any questions.

We will be publicising policies and procedures and notices that are compliant with the new regulations in the coming months and will keep you informed of any developments.

For the time being, your child’s data will be handled in the same manner in accordance with legal principles.

In the meantime, we thank you for your patience whilst we take the necessary steps set by the new legislation and guidance with handling data.

With Best Wishes,

Kirstie Barrett

Head of School
