You may be aware that from May 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 data. 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 at school in order to ensure that we remain compliant.
One of these changes is that we have updated our Privacy Notices and Data Protection Policy. These can be found on this page.
The point of this is to make sure sensitive or personal information about yourselves, your children and our workforce stays safe. Such information as names, date of birth is classed as personal data. This is data that can make you identifiable. At The Holt Primary School, we need to use and store such data. More information about this is outlined in our Privacy Notice and this helps us to process that personal data for teaching and learning purposes.
