Data Protection and Privacy
All data held by the school is compliant with the Data Protection Act of 2018.
The UK GDPR (UK General Data Protection Regulation) increases the importance of data protection and emphasises accountability. As a school we employ a ‘privacy by design’ approach – thinking about how we use and manage data securely in everything we do. The emphasis on accountability means that as a school we have increased the amount of documentation we use to record procedures and issues.
All personal data, electronic and paper copies, are stored on our secure server or in locked cabinets in locked rooms with access restricted on a 'need to know' basis.
The Information Commissioners Office (ICO) is the UK’s independent authority set up to uphold information rights in the public interest, promoting openness by public bodies and data privacy for individuals.
We do not store or process any biometric data.
The GDPR provides the following rights for individuals:
