Changes to Data Protection Law

 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 personal data. The point of this is to make sure sensitive or private information about yourselves and your child/children stay 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 in school in order to ensure we remain compliant. One of these changes is that we have updated our privacy notice. We have attached a copy of this for your information. You will also be able to find it on our website. As part of our work to comply with GDPR, we are also re seeking consent for using photographs or videos of your child on our website, twitter page, and internal displays, along with consent to take your child on organised walks around the locality.

If you have a concern about the way we are collecting or using your personal data, you should raise your concern with us directly in the first instance or with our Independent Data Protection Officer ( Mr Neil Stott. Data Protection Officer at c/o NETHERTON J&I or directly to the Information Commissioner’s Office at
