General Data Protection Regulation Requirements (GDPR)
What is GDPR?
Things are changing!
The GDPR will apply in all EU member states from 25 May 2018. This will affect how schools manage personal data and how this is protected and shared.
The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the result of four years of work by the EU to bring data protection legislation into line with new, previously unforeseen ways that data is now used.
Currently, the UK relies on the Data Protection Act 1998, which was enacted following the 1995 EU Data Protection Directive, but this will be superseded by the new legislation. It introduces tougher fines for non-compliance and breaches, and gives people more say over what companies can do with their data. It also makes data protection rules more or less identical throughout the EU.
In the coming weeks school will be updating Privacy Notices, Policies and Consent Forms to make sure we are compliant with the new GDPR.
Check regularly on this section to see what is new.
St John’s Church of England Primary School is committed to providing a secure environment for pupils, where children feel safe and are kept safe. All adults at St John’s recognise that Safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility irrespective of the role they undertake or whether their role has direct responsibility for children or not.
Every member of staff recognises that safeguarding against radicalisation and extremism is no different to safeguarding against any other vulnerability in the current society. This policy sets out our beliefs, strategies and procedures to protect vulnerable individuals from being radicalised or exposed to extremist views, by identifying who they are and promptly providing them with support.
When operating this policy, St John’s Church of England Primary School uses the following accepted Governmental definition of extremism which is:
‘Vocal or active opposition to fundamental British Values, including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs; and / or calls for the death of members of our armed forces, whether in this country or overseas.’
