General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
As a school it is necessary for us to hold personal information relating to your child. We are always extremely careful with this information.
You may be aware that from 25th May 2018, the rules around data protection are changing. The 'General Data Protection Regulation' (GDPR) will change how we can use your personal data and keep it safe, and will also strengthen your rights over your own data.
This is to make sure sensitive or private information about yourself and your children stays safe. Whilst the new rules are similar to the current Data Protection Act in many ways, there are a few differences, so we need to make a few changes at the school in order to ensure we remain compliant. One of these changes is that we have updated our privacy notices which can be found below.
It is very important that all of the data we hold regarding your child, and yourself is kept up to date should we need to contact you in an emergency. You are now able to check and update both your and your child’s data via the SIMS Parent App. The app also allows you to view and track your child's academic progress, attendance and conduct all on one place.
If you have not already done so, please click on the links below to visit the Apple App Store or the Android App Store to download and check your data now.
If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you, or how we are preparing, please contact our Data Protection Officer.
