Data Protection and Privacy
At The Sele School we take Data Protection and Privacy very seriously. In May 2018 the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) came into force in the UK; building on 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. As required by GDPR, we have a Data Protection Officer, Matthew Smith (Governor), to oversee our approach to data management and protection.
To make it easier for parents, carers, students and other members of the school community to understand the approach that The Sele School takes to Data Protection, Privacy and GDPR, we have grouped all relevant policies and documents here for ease of access.
You may also find it helpful to refer to the relevant Data Protection and Privacy Notice Summary which can be downloaded below:
In order to comply with GDPR agreements that we have with parents, carers, students, staff and Governors and students, such as our Online Safety Agreement. The new regulations are clear that consent must be up-to-date and clearly recorded; lack of response cannot be interpreted as implied consent.
Consequently when consent forms are sent out, please ensure that you return these to us promptly.
