Data Protection

Data Protection and the General Data Protection Regulation 2018

The current Data Protection Act 1998 will be repealed and replaced with the Data Protection Act 2018.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:


  • Lawfulness, transparency and fairness.
  • Collect data for a specific purpose and use it for that purpose
  • Limited collection
  • Accuracy
  • Retention
  • Security

What is the point of the GDPR?

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.
