At the end of May 2018 changes are being implemented to Data Protection laws, known as General Data Protection Regulations or "GDPR". You may have been aware of an increase in post and e mails from other services you use in recent weeks. GDPR seeks to bring current data protection law into line with the more modern ways that data is now being used.
Schools have always had to comply with data protection legislation so there is little immediate impact on how we work. However, the advent of the GDPR has prompted us to consider and review our processes so we continue to be compliant.
If you would like to read more about the legislation the following link gives a comprehensive explanation.
North Hykeham All Saints Primary school has always followed the Lincolnshire County Councils (LCC) Data Protection Policy and used their Privacy Notices. GDPR requires us to be more explicit than in the past so we have produced a new Data Protection Policy, from the LCC school’s model, that is specific to our school.
Similarly we have created Privacy Notices that are in line with Department for Education models, but representative of our school. These explain what data we hold and why we need to hold it. These documents can be read below.
If you would like paper copies of any of these please contact Mrs Laughton in the school office.
If you have any questions about the new regulations, please contact Mrs Laughton our Senior Administrator or Mrs Clare Gilman-Abel our Data Protection Officer.
