SO… WHAT IS THE UK DATA PROTECTION ACT 2018 AND HOW DOES IT AFFECT YOU?

The UK Data Protection Act 2018, based on the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is a new data protection law, which will replace the existing EU laws. It aims to strengthen the protection of “personal data” paying particular attention to the way that data is now used and shared through internet and cloud technologies.

The EU wants to give people more control over how their data is used, whilst making a simpler, clearer a legal framework for organisations who manage, control and process people’s data.

 

RODING PRIMARY SCHOOL AND THE UK DATA PROTECTION ACT 2018

Here at Roding Primary School, we have been working hard to ensure we are fully GDPR compliant in time for this landmark privacy law.

This includes our role as 'data controllers' for the information we hold on our customers as well as 'data processors' for the data our customers hold within our solutions.

To this end, the school has published a Data Privacy Notice which details more information about how we use pupil data in the school, which can be read here:
