On May 25th 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation came into effect across the EU. It is a new law to ensure all data held and processed by organisations within the EU is secure and processed lawfully.
Public organisations, schools (and academies) are required to comply with GDPR. At Swanwick Primary School we have:
- Made everyone on the staff aware – all the way up to our governors, including online training.
- Have explored how we can monitor data protection across the schools our school including limiting and monitoring what software we use and computer practices.
We now have a GDPR compliant version of our Data Protection Policy, with the addition of Privacy Notices for both staff and pupils.
