What is GDPR?
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European law which comes into effect on the 25th May 2018 and is the culmination of 4 years of deliberation on the changes of technology since the current data protection directive 1995 was enacted, as well as possible future technologies.
If you consider that in 1995 we had Ceefax, telephone boxes, no internet and no social media, many things have changed, not least the reliance on sharing personal information for banking, e-commerce and social interaction thereby greatly increasing the potential risk to the individual.
As a school we have taken all the necessary steps to make sure we comply with the new regulations. Below are some useful documents that will help in our compliance, and offer further information on the subject of GDPR.
Useful GDPR documents:
