GDPR and Changes to Data Protection Law
You may be aware that from 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.
The point of this is to make sure sensitive or private information about yourselves and your children stays safe. Whilst it is 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 Notice; this can be viewed below.
At Bracebridge Infant and Nursery School, we need to use and store some information about you and your child. This information is personal data which is outlined in our Privacy Notice and helps us to process that personal data for teaching and learning purposes, as this helps us to deliver education in the public interest.
If you change your mind at any time or wish to withdraw consent, you can let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling into the school office.
If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you, or how our school is preparing for the changes you can contact our Data Protection Officer Mrs Heather Brunsden via school.
