As you are probably aware, the law on data protection in the UK changed on the 25 May, 2018. There is a new act, the Data Protection Act 2018, which applies the Europe-wide General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) to the UK. This will not be changed by Brexit.
The new rules are designed to take account of the massive changes in data use since the Data Protection Act 1998. Facebook, smartphones, SnapChat, even Google did not exist at the time these rules were created, so the world has changed and the law must do so too.
Our school is working to change all the various documents and processes, so you will see changes appearing on our website and forms over the next few months as required, to fit the new rules.
