General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)

Although data regulations changed on 25th May 2018, our commitment to protecting your details will never change. We want you to know that we take privacy very seriously. We always manage your details responsibly and take great care to keep them safe and secure.

                   We store and sometimes transfer your information to other authorities so that we can operate effectively as a school                     and be able to positively implement our duty of care for the school community. Under data regulations we are                                 lawfully able to do this to carry out tasks in the public interest and as part of our legal obligation.  We will only use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, promotional materials and other information relevant to the school environment.

                   We are being more transparent so that you know more about the personal information we hold. We have completed                     an information audit (located on our website) so you can see this information. Further information in also included                       in our data protection policy and privacy notices.

                   You have rights under data protection regulations, and we would like you to know what they are:

  • a right of access to a copy of the information comprised in your personal data. However, we may consider applying an exemption to some information where our duties maybe potentially compromised.
  • a right to object to processing that is likely to cause or is causing damage or distress;
  • a right to prevent processing for direct marketing;
  • a right to object to decisions being taken by automated means unless we have an overriding legitimate reason to continue;
  • a right in certain circumstances to have inaccurate personal data rectified, blocked, erased or destroyed.
  • a right to claim compensation for damages caused by a breach of the Act.
