Welcome to the GDPR 2018 - Data Protection
What is GDPR?
The law changed on 25th May 2018 with regard to the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which came into effect. It is designed to bring higher standards for handling data and provide greater expectations for improved transparency, enhanced data security and increased accountability for processing personal data. Schools have a legal duty to comply with the GDPR.
The EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the result of four years of work by the EU to bring data protection legislation into line with new, previously unforeseen ways that data is now used. Currently, the UK relies on the Data Protection Act 1998, which was enacted following the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive, but this will be superseded by the new legislation. It introduces tougher fines for non-compliance and breaches, and gives people more say over what companies can do with their data. It also makes data protection rules more or less identical throughout the EU.
We will routinely update Privacy Notices, policies and Consent Forms to make sure we are compliant with the new GDPR.
