On the 25th May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) came into force in the UK. These are new data protection regulations that build upon the Data Protection Act of 1998.
The GDPR require public authorities and businesses to identify the lawful basis for storing personal data, audit information we already hold and take a ‘data protection by design and default’ approach to personal data.
Members of school staff have access to your child’s records to enable them to do their jobs. From time to time, we may be share information with others involved in your child’s care (such as the local authority, Department of Education or NHS), but only if it is necessary to do so. We ensure that anyone with access to your child’s records is properly trained in confidentiality issues and is governed by a legal duty to keep the records secure, accurate and up to date.
We hold all information about your child securely, and maintain appropriate safeguards to prevent accidental loss.
We take data protection very seriously at Weston Park. In line with GDPR requirements we have appointed a Data Protection Officer:

020 3326 9174
