The Data Protection Act (2018) controls how your personal information is used by organisations, businesses or the government. The Data Protection Act 2018
is the UK’s implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and
applies to anyone who handles or has access to information concerning individuals. Everyone in the school has a legal duty to protect the privacy of information relating to individuals and everyone responsible for using personal data has to follow strict rules called ‘data protection principles’.
Please look at the school's Privacy Notice
for how we use pupil information.
Please follow these links for the school's Data Protection Policy.
Under the Data Protection Act 2018, you also have the right to find out what information the government and other organisations store about you. For
further information, please go to ICO Freedom of Information - Guide to Information available from Claremont Primary School.
