General Data Protection Regulation

Changes to data protection law (GDPR)

You may be aware that from 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 yours and your children’s rights over data.

At LIndley CE Infant School we want to make sure sensitive or private information about yourselves and your children stays 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 at the school in order to ensure we remain compliant.

We have updated our policy for Data Protection as well as writing new privacy notices for parents and children. The children’s privacy notice has been written using child-friendly language. This will be shared with the children after the holidays and a copy will be displayed in every classroom. A copy of both privacy notices and the policy can be found by clicking on the links below.

If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you, or how our school is preparing, you can contact the school office who will pass your query to our Data Protection officer. (See privacy notice for contact details).

If you are interested in more detail on the changing requirements please refer to the updated school policy or visit the website of the UK data protection regulator, the Information Commissioner's Office which has a wealth of information and resources by CLICKING THEIR LOGO BELOW.:
