On May 25th a new Regulation came into force, the General Data Protection Regulation. The aim of the Regulation is to make personal information even more confidential than it already is, under the current Data Proection act.  The Regulation affects all countries in the European Union, but it will reamin in British Law following Brexit.

In the United Kingdom the Information Commissioner's Office will check that everyone is complying with the law.

The school has worked hard to ensure that we comply with the requirments of the Regulation, because we take your privacy seriously.  

The school staff have had training so that they are familiar with the requirements of the GDPR.  Our new documentation has already been sent to you.

We have reviewing the security of all our IT systems and the storage of our paper records.  If any companies or partner agencies have access to any school data then we are requiring them to confirm that they also comply with the GDPR.

As part of the new regulations each organisation must employ a Data Protection Officer, our Data Protection Officer is:

Safeguarding Monitor

2 Wellington Place



0330 400 4142

For full details of our procedures please see our Data Protection Policy below, along with all of the documentation which we sent to you in paper form, and via our electronic communications system Parent Pay in May 2018.
