On the 25th May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force. This will replace the Data Protection Act and will strengthen the security of data held within organisations. I am writing to inform you of the work that the School is conducting to ensure that we comply with this new Regulation.
As parents you will have the right to:
A Privacy Notice for parents has been prepared by the School. This includes new information such as your right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
Schools are required to appoint a data protection officer (DPO). The DPO for our School is one of our governors, Henry Loweth. He can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can contact the ICO on 0303 123 1113, use their live chat or visit their website should you require further information.
