GDPR and Data Protection
On the 25th May 2018, the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998 was replaced by a new law called the GDPR (the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016). This law governs how we collect, use and share people’s information and provides greater rights to individuals and control over how their information is handled by organisations, including school.
Data protection is very important at St John’s and we view it as an extension to safeguarding – not only for pupils, but their families, our staff, our governors and our volunteers.
We are taking steps to review and update our processes around how we are handling your information. This page will be updated on a regular basis.
In the meantime, if you would like to know more about GDPR and your rights, please visit the UK’s data protection regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office, using the link below.
Should you have any queries regarding the GDPR and our school, please contact our Data Protection Officer, Mrs Hall, via the school office email (firstname.lastname@example.org), telephone (01923 255 017) or by visiting the school office during term time.
Please find below our Privacy Notices – we are in the process of transferring our privacy notices onto the website.
Our privacy notices detail why we collect data, how we collect it and how we use it.
