General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was brought into EU law in May 2016 and became enforceable on 25th May 2018. The GDPR is a European regulation which means it automatically becomes applicable to all member states. The UK is supporting this by introducing the Data Protection Bill.
The EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a result of four years of work by the EU. The aim of the GDPR is to strengthen and standardise the safety and security of all data held within an organisation (schools), reflecting changes in technology and the ways in which employers (educational establishments) collect information about data subjects (pupils and parents).
In the coming weeks we will be updating Privacy Notices, Policies and Consent Forms to make sure we are compliant with the new GDPR.
Check regularly on this section to see what is new.
