General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
On the 25th May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) came into force in the UK. These are new data protection regulations built upon the Data Protection Act of 1998.
The GDPR require public authorities and businesses to identify the lawful basis for storing personal data, audit information we already hold and take a ‘data protection by design and default’ approach to personal data.
We take data protection very seriously at Creswick Primary & Nursery School. In line with GDPR requirements, we have already appointed two Data Protection Officers to oversee our approach to data management and protection.
Our Data Protection Officers are:
Mrs Sarah Fitzgerald (School Business Manager) and/or Dr Traynor (School Governor). If you would like to contact either DPO please email firstname.lastname@example.org (preferably during term time).
In order to ensure that we comply with the new regulations, we are reviewing our current policies and practices. We have already updated our privacy notices in line with the new requirements and have developed a GDPR Policy. These can be found below:
