On May 25th 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation came into effect across the EU. The GDPR is a piece of EU-wide legislation which will determine how people's personal data is processed and kept safe and the legal rights individuals have in relation to their own data.
As public organisations, schools (and academies) are required to comply.
At Etz Chaim, we have:
· Worked with other local schools on compliance
· Received training regarding GDPR
· Made everyone in school aware of GDPR including governors and appointed a DPO
· Written an action plan
· Begun reviewing all of our data and documents
We already highly value and protect all of our student, parents and staff data and will continue to do so in the presence of GDPR.
As a parent you may receive some letters from us regarding GDPR. Some of those may be about consent and some about updating your information with us. We would appreciate it if you would read all information you receive and send back any relevant documents back to school.
For further information about GDPR please visit the ICO website. Our Data Protection Officer is: Patrick Aikman.
