General Data Protection Regulation

General Data Protection Regulation


You may be aware that as from May 25th 2018 the rules around data protection have changed. The 'General Data Protection Regulation' (GDPR) has changed how we can use your personal data and keep it safe, and has also strengthen your rights over your own data.


The point of this is to make sure sensitive or private information about yourselves and your children stays safe. This is also the case for our suppliers. Whilst it is similar to the current Data Protection Act in many ways, there are a few differences, so we need to make a few changes at the school in order to ensure we remain compliant.


One of these changes is that we have updated our privacy notice so one is designated to parents and pupils and one is designated to our suppliers. You will find both of these documents below.

These privacy notices inform you of what data we hold, how it is stored and for how long and who we share it with.


If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you please contact :- Val Williams –School Business Manager on 0161778 0022 or email

Miranda Carruthers-Watt – Data  Protection Officer on 0161 793 3008 or email
