From 25 May 2018, new regulations will be introduced which affect how our school handle people's data. This is called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Full details of our data protection officer can be found below should you have any questions.
All documentation will be added to this page, to include policy and privacy notices that are compliant with the new regulations.
Your children's data will be handled in the same manner in accordance with legal principles.
Parents have the right to withdraw their consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not affect any images or videos that have been shared prior to withdrawal. If you would like to withdraw your consent, you must submit your request in writing to the Head Teacher.
The school's complaints policy sets out the complaints process. This will be the basis for dealing with Data Protection Complaints and appeals. A written outcome will be provided.
