On the 25th May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) came into force in the UK. These are new data protection regulations build upon the Data Protection Act of 1998.
The GDPR require public authorities and businesses to identify the lawful basis for storing personal data, audit information we already hold and take a ‘data protection by design and default’ approach to personal data.
We take data protection very seriously at Shephalbury Park.
In line with GDPR requirements, we have already appointed a Data Protection Officer, Patrick Aikman who can be contacted on patrick@schoolDPOservice.com to oversee our approach to data management and protection.
There are a number of documents that support our approach to GDPR. The main documents regarding this will be uploaded below. If you would like a printed copy please contact the school office.
