Changes to Data Protection Law May 2018
On 25th May 2018, the rules around data protection were changed with the introduction of the ‘General Data Protection Regulation’ (GDPR). GDPR is retained in domestic law as the UK GDPR, but the UK has the independence to keep the framework under review. The ‘UK GDPR’ sits alongside an amended version of the DPA 2018. This regulation will change how we can use your personal data and how we keep it safe. It will also strengthen your rights over your own data.
The reason for this is to make sure sensitive or private information about yourselves and your children stays safe. Whilst it is similar to the previous 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 that we remain compliant.
Kensington Avenue Primary School is part of The Manor Trust, a company limited by guarantee, registered in England and Wales under company number 07843573. The Trust is a Multi Academy Trust and is the Data Controller for all the Personal Data processed at both academies.
