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.
One of these changes is that we have updated our privacy notice. Please see above.
As part of our work to comply with the GDPR, we will be re-seeking consent for:
- Using names and photographs or videos of your child on our website, internal displays or other school materials.
- Biometric System (Cashless Canteen).
There will also be:
- A Data Checking sheet for you to amend/inform. This ensures that the information we hold is correct.
- An updated IT acceptable Use Agreement which should be signed by both parent and student.
During the next half term these documents will be sent to you via the students in a sealed envelope. A text will be sent prior to this so that you will be aware that the students are bringing important documents home.
