Data Protection (GDPR)
Data Protection and General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
The school has reviewed its data protection arrangements to ensure we comply with the General Data Protection Regulations and the Data Protection Act 2018.
How does Data Protection legislation protect personal data?
The aim of the GDPR is to strengthen and standardise the safety and security of all data held within an organisation, reflecting changes in technology and the ways in which organisations collect information about ‘individuals’ (data subjects). The regulation provides certain rights which data controllers and data processors must respect.
