On the 25 May 2018, the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998 is being 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 schools.

What Will Schools Be Doing to Prepare for GDPR?

Schools already have strict data protection policies. Data is kept secure and used appropriately. Much will stay the same but with GDPR it will bring even better security and greater transparency. In many areas consent is not needed as schools have a duty to keep children safe and deliver a high standard of education. Where consent is needed, you will be asked for it in a clear manner and be allowed to remove it, is you wish.


We’re taking steps to review and up-date our processes around how we are handling your information and have appointed an external Data Protection Officer to help us get ready for the changes. We will publish more information about how we are meeting the GDPR on this page in due course. If in the meantime you would like to know more about the GDPR and your rights, please visit the UK’s data protection regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office at  


Should you have any queries regarding the GDPR and our school, please email us at email:
