GDPR: Data Protection
Schools, Local Authorities (LA), the Department for Education (DfE) and other educational bodies that process personal data about pupils and staff are required by the Data Protection Act (1998) to issue a Notice to parents/pupils and staff to inform them of the purposes for which that personal data may be held and used.
In the past, the Privacy Notice has included the use of school information made available by the LA or the DfE. The new process will mean much simpler Privacy Notices, where details of any organisations with which the LA and DFE share data are contained on the LA and DFE websites, with links from the Privacy Notices. This means that Privacy Notices do not need reissuing on an annual basis. The aim is to make the Privacy Notices issued to children and staff general and constant. Any changes to the details of organisations with which school or LA data is shared can be updated on the LA and DFE websites.
