The previous Data Protection Act 1998 has been replaced with the Data Protection Act 2018.
Central and Ashgate Nursery Schools Federation is required to keep and process certain information about its staff members and pupils in accordance with its legal obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and DPA 2017-18
The school may, from time to time, be required to share personal information about its staff or pupils with other organisations, mainly the LA, other schools and educational bodies, and potentially social services.
This policy is in place to ensure all staff and governors are aware of their responsibilities and outlines how the school complies with the following key principles of the GDPR:
In order to comply with the Government’s guidance with regard to shutting schools and providing places for key worker children, it is necessary for us to collect and manage data about these children and their parents/carers in a different way.
Our standard GDPR policy applies, and information found on our privacy notices relating to staff, parents and of course pupils will apply in all cases.
We will use the information that relates to key workers in order to ensure that those children who are entitled to a place at school whilst schools are officially closed are correctly processed, managed and safeguarded.
The Data Controller continues to take its obligations to data processing seriously and will ensure that appropriate safeguards and measures are in place.
The GDPR and new DPA exist to look after individual’s data. It is a series of safeguards for every individual. Information about individuals needs to be treated with respect and be secure.
The GDPR exists to protect individual rights in an increasingly digital world.
