GDPR - General Data Protection Regulations
From 25th May 2018, the DPA 1998 will be replaced by the General Data Protection Regulation which is often referred to as the “GDPR”. Although many of the principles will remain the same as the DPA 1998, there will be some important changes which will affect schools
The GDPR requires 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 Holwell Primary School. In line with GDPR requirements, we have appointed Herts For Learning to act as our Data Protection Officer and to oversee our approach to data management and protection.
