UK GDPR legislation focuses on the way we gather, handle, store and dispose of data on our pupils, parents, staff and alumni. We have robust and secure systems for both our electronic and paper records.
As a school we are required to collect certain information in order to carry out our core functions of providing education and ensuring the wellbeing and welfare of the children. We do this on the legal basis that we are required to as an authority and therefore require no further permission to do this. There are areas however where we do require your permission to use the information you have given us for activities other than our core functions. These include extra curricular activities, Parent Association events, Alumni events amongst others. For these additional activities we will seek your specific consent to use your information, this must be freely given, informed and unambiguous. We will send out consent requests for these various activities via Microsoft forms/letters to ensure that we meet all the above requirements and so that we are able to keep a record of when consent was given.
