Data Protection (GDPR)

You may be aware that from 25th May 2018, 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 and you can view this  here

Further information for parents is also available here

As part of our work to comply with the GDPR, we will be contacting you to seek your consent to for using images of your child on school materials.

Our Interim Data Protection Officer (DPO) is Ms M O’Neill.

If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you please contact the school office on data@heathland.harrow.sch.uk
