Our world is becoming increasingly dependent on digital data. Many aspects of our lives can now be processed online (banking, shopping or online subscriptions for example) using a variety of digital tools and apps. Many of our records in school are now also computer based. Companies and organisations now have to be mindful of the safety of collecting, using and sharing information online. 

With this in mind GDPR will be launched on 25th May 2018. It replaces the current UK Data Protection Act (1998). GDPR stands for the EU General Data Protection Regulation. It will govern how schools collect, use and share information. It provides individuals with rights and control over how their information is handled by organisations, including schools.

At Woodland Grange we are taking steps to review and up date our policies and processes around handling information. The school will provide a DPO (Data Protection Office) who will monitor these changes. We will publish more information about how we are meeting the GDPR on this page in due course, which will include a privacy notice explaining how we handle pupil information, what rights you have and how to exercise them and our policies around this.

If you would like to find out more about the GDPR and your rights, please visit the UK’s data protection regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office at
