GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (GDPR)

The new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law came into effect on Friday 25th May 2018. The objective of this law is to ensure all personal data relating to living EU citizens (including the UK) is protected and that those who are entrusted with such data are held accountable for its protection.

Priory Church of England Primary School is committed to data privacy and protection and is taking all necessary steps to ensure GDPR compliance. The GDPR principles will be embedded in our data processing so that parents/carers, pupils, staff, volunteers and visitors are assured that we handle their personal data respectfully, and do so in line with the law.

We have taken the following actions to ensure compliance with the GDPR:
