General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
GDPR is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. It also addresses the export of personal data outside the EU. You may be aware that from 25th May, the rules around data protection changed. The new ‘General Data Protection Regulation’ changes how we can use your personal data and keep it safe, and will also strengthen your rights over your own data.
The changes are 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. The new privacy notice is available using the tabs along the side of this page.
As part of our work to comply with the GDPR, we are also re-seeking consent for using photographs or videos of your child on our website, internal displays or other school materials.
If you have any questions or queries about GDPR at North Lancing Primary or you are concerned there has been a data security breach, please contact the school data officer: Mrs Clare Smith – firstname.lastname@example.org and title your email GDPR query.
