Data Protection and GDPR

Plaistow Primary Policies and Procedures

 At Plaistow Primary School we take data protection very seriously.  We ensure all staff understand the importance of protecting the privacy of the pupils, parents, carers, contractors and other staff members through robust policies and training.  

On 25th May 2018 data protection laws changed to give individuals more rights on how their data is used.  The changes include the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which all organisations and schools in England and the EU must comply with along with a new data protection bill.  

The policies included in GDPR are:

Data Protection Policy

Individual Rights Policy

Privacy Notice to Parents

CCTV Policy
