The School is committed to protecting the rights and privacy of individuals in accordance with both United Kingdom and European Union data protection legislation.
The data protection legislation confers rights on individuals as well as responsibilities on those persons processing personal data. This policy sets out how the School seeks to process personal data and ensure that staff and parents understand the rules governing the use of personal data.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR EU 2016/679) replaces the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and was designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, to protect and empower all EU citizens’ data privacy and to reshape the way organizations across the region approach data privacy. The GDPR will be enforced from 25 May 2018. This version of the School’s policy has been updated to reflect the GDPR.
