The General Data Protection Regulation came into force in May 2018 and gives individuals the right to know what personal data is held by organisations, what it is used for and who it is shared with.
We would like to reassure you that St Elizabeth’s is compliant with the legislation and that we only keep the following information:
- That which we are required to by law – for example pupil names, start dates, information on pupils’ progress.
- That which we are required to ensure the health, safety and well-being of our pupils – for example details of medical conditions, dietary information, allergy information.
- That which you, as parents, have consented to and supplied us with – for example emergency contacts, email addresses, consent forms.
We share some of this information with third parties such as the Local Authority, which we are required to do by law, but we never share personal information for marketing purposes. If in doubt, we would always seek your permission before sharing personal information.
As a school, we will only contact you with information that we feel is relevant to keep you informed such as information on visits for your child or school events. If you wish to stop receiving these, please let the school know.
