GDPR and Data Protection
The European-wide General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is being incorporated into UK law from 25th May 2018 and will apply even when we have left the European Union. The reason for the GDPR is that we all need protection from data theft and identity theft. This has become more widespread in recent years with so much data being collected for organisations, governments and social media. So the new law should help us to protect everyone; children, parents/carers and staff members at Woodfall Primary and Nursery School. One of the main demands of the new law is to ensure transparency about what data we collect, what we do with your data, who it is shared with and how long we keep records for.
As part of the GDPR expectations, please find attached our Privacy Notices for parents/carers, pupils and staff workforce.
