Public organisations, schools (and academies) are also required to comply with GDPR. At Pennoweth Primary & Nursery School we have been working on our GDPR readiness since September 2017. As a school Safeguarding is very important to us so we already had strong Data Protection policies and protections in place but these are now being updated in line with GDPR. The current draft of these policies can be seen on the Policies web page here.
We are working on our practice to ensure that GDPR is central to our day-to-day culture. We already highly value and protect all of our pupil, parent and staff data and will continue to do so in the presence of GDPR.
