Dear Parent / Carer

Changes to Data Protection Law

You may be aware that from 25 May 2018, the rules around data protection have changed.  The ‘General Data Protection Regulation’ (GDPR) will change how we can use your personal data and keep it safe, and will strengthen your rights over your own data.

The reason for this is to make sure sensitive or private information about you and your family stays safe.  Whilst it is similar to the current Data Protection Act in many ways, there are a few differences, so we have made some key amendments in order to ensure we remain compliant.

One of these changes is that we have updated our privacy notice, which you will find on the school website within the Policies Section: No.7 - Data Protection Policy.

If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you, or how our school is preparing, you can contact our Data Protection Office via e-mail: DPO@brightonhill.hants.sch.uk.   

Yours faithfully

Mr C Edwards

Headteacher
