25th May 2018
Dear Parents and Carers,
As you will no doubt be aware, new data protection legislation comes into force on 25th May 2018. Much of what schools already do to protect data meets the requirements of the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), but there will need to be some changes to how the school captures data and uses it. At the moment, we are engaging in the following activities:
Most of the impact of GDPR will be felt behind the scenes. However, there will be a few minor changes that you as parents and carers may notice going forward. These include:
To help you understand how the school is working to meet the new GDPR requirements, I have included a helpful leaflet that outlines what schools nationally are doing to try and ensure we satisfy the new regulations. In addition, the new Privacy Notice that we must provide you with statutorily can be found here on our school website, located above this information or http://www.bwmat.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/BWMAT-Privacy-Notice-FINAL-MAY-2018-1.pdf
As always, please do ask if you have any questions or indeed ideas that might be of use relating to the management and protection of data.
Mrs S Nickells
