The GDPR is focused on looking after the privacy and rights of the individual and is based on the premise that we should all have knowledge of what data is held about us and how it is used.
The majority of pupil information that you provide to the school is mandatory and is required to enable us to fulfil our official function. On the few occasions when we need your consent to collect and use information, we will ensure that your consent is freely given and that it is specific, informed and unambiguous.
We also need to ensure that the data we hold on your child is always up to date; please help us to keep your child’s records current by informing us of any change of circumstances.
We already highly value and protect all of our pupil, parent/carer and staff data and will continue to do so in the presence of GDPR. We will continually review our practice to ensure that GDPR is central to our day-to-day culture. We will ensure that your personal data is processed fairly and lawfully, is accurate, is kept secure and is retained for no longer than is necessary.
