General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Changes to Data Protection Law (GDPR)

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.

Under data protection legislation, parents have the right to request access to information about them and their children.  To make a request for your personal information, or be given access to your child’s education record, please contact either the Headteacher, Mrs Shelford or the Business Manager, Mrs Cliffe at district@sthelens.org.uk.  Our Data Protection Officer is Dean Hulse, Hulse Yarzdi Limited, Reed House, Hunters Lane, Rochdale OL16 1YL. Email: DPO@wearehy.com.  His role is to ensure that data is stored lawfully and safely; in addition, in the event of a serious data breach, it is his duty to report this to the Information Commissioner Officer (ICO)

You will find new policies relating to GDPR in this section.  If you require a printed copy, you can request this from the school office.
