Information Governance (Data Protection and GDPR)

Ridge Community Primary School asks our families, our workforce, and third parties to provide us with a range of information, so that we can carry out our responsibilities as a school.

We always strive to handle this information with consideration and discretion, following the core principles of data protection.

From 25th May 2018 new guidance – the General Data Protection Regulations or GDPR – came into place to govern how organisations look after information.

To ensure our compliance with GDPR, the school undertook a review of our policies and procedures to ensure that we comply with these guidelines, and have produced a handbook which provides guidance to school personnel.
