Privacy Notice

The Data Protection Act 1998 has put in place numerous safeguards regarding the use of personal data by organisations, including the Department for Education (DfE), local authorities, schools and early year’s settings. This area of law is complex. The Act gives rights to those about whom data is held, known as data subjects. This includes:

 

• the right to know the types of data being held

• why it is being held

• to whom it may be communicated

 

Privacy notices are designed to meet those needs of the Act.

The RBWM Privacy Notice was formerly the Fair Processing Notice.

 

Each academic year, as a legal requirement, Holy Trinity requests that parents/carers complete a Data Collection form for their child. It requires confirmation of their child's contact details, medical conditions, special dietary needs and photo/image usage permissions.

There are a variety of reasons as to why photographs may be taken in school. These are listed as part of the consent form.
