Useful information and links for parents
On May 25th 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation came into effect across the EU. It is a new law that is being implemented in exactly the same way across all EU countries to create a level set of rules to ensure all data held and processed by organisations within the EU is secure and processed lawfully.
All schools are required to comply with GDPR. At Badgerbrook Primary School we are working towards compliance. We have:
- Made staff and governors aware of the implications
- Been on training courses
- Written an action plan
- Begun reviewing all of our data and documents and updating them
- Issued an updated privacy notice for parents and carers
We already have strong data protection policies and procedures in place but these need to be updated in line with GDPR. We are working closely with the local authority to make sure that GDPR is in place in our school. We already value and protect all of our pupil, parent and staff data and will continue to do so.
As a parent/carer you may receive some letters from us regarding GDPR. Some of those may be about consent and some about updating your information with us. Please do read and send back everything you receive.
Details of the updated Data Protection policy and privacy notices will be available here shortly.
