General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) 

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) came into force on 25 May 2018 in order to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the European Union. It has replaced  the Data Protection Act 1998 to ensure that all data held within our school is processed, stored and safeguarded in accordance with this new legislation.  Any data breach received by the school, under the new Regulations, which is likely to cause personal damage e.g., identity theft, will be reported to the ICO (Information Commissoner's Office) within 72 hours from notification.   *Please note:  the school will be closed from Friday 21 December 2018 (15.15 pm) until Monday 7 January 2019 (08:55 am)*


All of the information we hold on individuals follows the seven key principles:


  1. Fair, lawful and transparent
  2. Collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes
  3. Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary
  4. Accurate, and where necessary, kept up to date
  5. Kept in a form which permits identification for no longer than is necessary
  6. Processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security
  7. Accountability, the ability to demonstrate to the ICO compliance with new Regulations

In order to provide an effective education system that can respond to the needs of all children, systems are used that improve and standardise communication between schools and the County Council.  Much of this data is held on computer systems and is subject to the Data Protection Act. The Data Protection Act says that information must only be used for the purpose for which it is collected. In the case of each child, the information will only be used by teachers to help the child’s progress, by the DfE and educational professionals. Parents may request to know what information is being held in relation to their child by writing to the Headteacher of the child’s present school. Further information regarding Data Protection can
be obtained from the Northumberland County Council (NCC) website
