The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the new law that will apply to all organisations, including schools. It replaces the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA 1998) which currently governs the way organisations process personal data about people (pupils, employees etc), and the legal rights that individuals have in relation to the data held on record by an organisation, including schools.

On this page, you will find our GDPR specific policies and documents as well as some articles and supporting materials that can help you better understand what GDPR means.
