GDPR and Privacy Notices

What is GDPR?

New Legislation is now in force.

The GDPR became effective in all EU member from 25 May 2018. This has affected how schools manage personal data and how this is protected and shared.

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the result of four years of work by the EU to bring data protection legislation into line with new, previously unforeseen ways that data is now used.

Previously, the UK relied on the Data Protection Act 1998, which was enacted following the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive, but this was superseded by the new legislation. It introduced tougher fines for non-compliance and breaches, and gave people more say over what companies can do with their data. It also made data protection rules more or less identical throughout the EU.

We have has updated Privacy Notices, policies and Consent Forms to esure we are compliant with the new GDPR.

Check regularly on this section to see what is new.
