On May 25th 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation will come into effect across the European Union. The GDPR is a piece of EU-wide legislation which will determine how people’s personal data is processed and kept safe and the legal rights individuals have in relation to their own data.
As public organisations, schools (and academies) are required to comply.
The process of becoming fully GDPR compliant will be long because it affects all aspects of the school.
We already highly value and protect all of our student, parent and staff data and will continue to do so in the presence of GDPR.
For further information about GDPR please visit the ICO website.
Mr Watson is the Data Protection Lead for St John’s Catholic Primary School.
Mrs Michelle Boniface is the Kent Catholic Schools Partnership’s designated Data Protection Officer. Please refer to the GDPR Policy for her contact details.
