On the 25th May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) come 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 Rivers Education Support Centre. In line with GDPR requirements, we have already appointed a Data Protection Officer, Sarah Goldsmith, to oversee our approach to data management and protection.
We have also updated our privacy notices for pupils, parents, staff and management committee.
See below for parent/carer and pupil privacy notices.
