General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
You may have heard that the law which manages how we use your information has changed.
The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect on 25th May 2018.
The law ensured all personal data is protected and organisations who work with such data are held accountable for its protection.
Following the Brexit agreement, EU data protection law has been converted into UK domestic law with some minor technical amendments.
How We Use Your Information
UK Data Protection Law encourages organisations that are responsible for using people’s information to make sure it is clear why we need your information and how it is used.
To help explain how your information is used we have published a Privacy Notice, which you can read in the School Policies section of the website.
We are also taking the opportunity to review how we manage data and our GDPR compliance. Rakegate Primary School is committed to the highest standards of information security, privacy and transparency.
