Data Protection



On May 25th 2018 a new data privacy law was introduced called GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

This affects schools and businesses across the UK.

We are not changing the ways we use personal information but we are changing the way we go about collecting it and storing it. 


This section of the website will give you the information you need about GDPR. We will add to it as we go along.


Data Protection and the GDPR – January 2021


As the UK transitional arrangements expired on 31 December 2020, there are some practical changes for Data Protection and the GDPR.  To comply with the Data Protection, Privacy and Electronic Communications (Amendments etc) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 please note that every policy, notice and procedural guide that refers to ‘GDPR’ shall now be read as ‘UK GDPR’.


The rights, responsibilities and data protection that the Data Protection Act 2018 and the GDPR are not changed. Our procedures and arrangements will not change.
