Re: Changes to Data Protection Law
You may be aware that from May, the rules around data protection are changing. The 'General Data Protection Regulation' (GDPR) will change how we can use your personal data and keep it safe, and will also strengthen 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 current 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 (see documents below).
As part of our work to comply with the GDPR, we are required to obtain parental consent for using photographs or videos of your child on our website, internal displays or other school materials etc, please see our multi purpose parental consent form below. If you wish to change your parental consent at any time, please complete this form and return it to the school office. If you wish to view your previous consent form, please contact the admin team.
If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you, or how our school is preparing, you can contact the DPO, Diane Robertson C/o St Gregory's Catholic Primary School, Furness Road, Workington, Cumbria, CA14 3PD.
