Talking to your children about consent is very important. Boys and girls need to know that it’s OK to say no, and for it to be respected. https://t.co/bZ9vM7wfFB

Instead of shortening the summer holiday why not ensure that there are fully-funded local sports, arts and cultural clubs for all children to attend. There are plenty of businesses, who already work with schools, who can provide this. Same goes for extending the school day.

GDPR

At Waldegrave, we have always highly valued and protected all of our student, parents and staff data and continue to refine our practices and procedures to ensure we are compliant with current data protection regulations. For further information about GDPR please visit the ICO website. Mrs M Cassels is our appointed Data Protection Officer (DPO) and her role is to oversee the way the school handles data and ensure that requests for data are dealt with in accordance with GDPR. Any subject access requests (SAR), Freedom of Information requests (FOI) and queries you have about the way in which your data will reach her through our info@waldegravesch.org e-mail address.

The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) replaces the Data Protection Act 1998, and under this new framework, you have the right to:

Be informed about how we use your personal data.

  • Request access to the personal data that the school holds.
  • Request that your personal data is amended if it is inaccurate or incomplete.
  • Request that your personal data is erased where there is no compelling reason for its continued processing.
  • Request that the processing of your data is restricted.
  • Object to your personal data being processed.

The GDPR will result in some significant changes for the school, meaning that the school will have to prove their compliance with the GDPR, by having effective policies in place. These new policies are available through the links below. 

Privacy notice for Parents & Pupils

As a school it is also important to consider the data rights of children. Any data requests / alterations will require parental consent for children up to the age of 13, but after this point, the child may be able to consent for themselves.

One of the biggest changes has been in terms of consent; consent must be a ‘positive indication’, which means that it has to be opted into, clear and unambiguous. This means that any permissions you give have to be detailed separately and consent is only granted if you actively give permission to the school. 

We are pleased to be able to announce that we have also appointed one of our school governors to the role of Data Protection Governor.  This role will focus on monitoring the schools policies and procedures to ensure compliance with the new GDPR legislation and present an annual report to governors. 

Please read the school’s privacy notices available on this website. It is important that you read and understand the privacy notice, as the school wants to ensure that you know what we are doing with your data and that you know we are acting legally.

When relevant policies have been checked and ratified, they will be published on the school’s website.

If you have any questions about GDPR, you can contact the ICO on 0303 123 1113 or by using their live chat, or you can visit their webpage.
