At the end of May 2018 changes are being implemented to Data Protection laws, known as General Data Protection Regulations or "GDPR". You may have been aware of an increase in post and e mails from other service you use in recent weeks. GDPR seeks to bring current data protection law into line with the more modern ways that data is now being used.
Schools have always had to comply with data protection legislation so there is little immediate impact on how we work. However, the advent of the GDPR has prompted us to consider and review our processes to continue to be compliant.
If you would like to read more about the legislation the following link gives a comprehensive explanation.
Billingborough Primary school has always followed the Lincolnshire County Councils (LCC) Data Protection Policy and used their Privacy Notices. GDPR requires us to be more explicit than in the past so we have produced a new Data Protection Policy from the LCC school’s model that is specific to our school.
Similarly we have created Privacy Notices (for children, parents, volunteers, governors and staff) that are in line with Department for Education models, but representative of our school. These explain what data we hold and why we need to hold it.
These documents ( in draft form until full governor approval is given at their meeting on May 22nd 2018) can be read below.
If you would like paper copies of any of these please contact Mrs Short in the school office.
We have redesigned the form we use to collect the personal data we request from our families and the specific consents we ask you for. The GDPR does not allow us to assume consent because you have not told us you "don't want to" or haven't told us otherwise. So now we are asking you to let us know , Yes /No to specific questions.
The document below will be sent to parents , with an accompanying letter in mid May so we are ready for the new legislation at the end of the month.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
