Privacy Notice and GDPR

Changes to data protection law


You may be aware that from May 2018, the rules around data protection changed. The 'General Data Protection Regulation' (GDPR) changes how we can use your personal data and keep it safe, and also strengthens your rights over your own data.


The point of this is to make sure sensitive or private information about yourselves and your children stays safe. Whilst it is similar to the old 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.


One of these changes is that we have updated our PRIVACY NOTICE. This can be found by clicking on the link above. Alternatively, paper copies can be obtained from the school office.


As part of our work to comply with the GDPR, we also seek consent for using photographs or videos of your child on our website, internal displays and other school materials.


If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you, or how our school is prepared, you can contact Mrs Honey or another member of the Safeguarding Team (Mrs Lancaster, Miss Varney or Miss Weston).


Please be assured that our website managers (Primary Site) have taken specialist advice and is compliant. If you would like to find out more, please take a look at their updated privacy policy at
