School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. If you want to know our policy on something that is not listed, please ask the school office.
Paper copies are available free of charge upon request.
Subject Access Requests (SAR)
The school office may be closed outside of term time. Any requests made during holidays may not be completed by our staff until the school reopens. This includes Subject Access Requests (SAR) under GDPR and Freedom of Information Requests. Due to the complexities of replying to such requests during the school holidays, we may need up to 2 months, although we will endeavour to complete it more quickly, and usually within the standard 30 days once we are satisfied with your identity and the school is open. If we need longer than this during term time, we will inform you. See https://ico.org.uk/your-data-matters/time-limits-for-responding-to-data-protection-rights-requests/ for clarification of this information.
We already highly value and protect all of our student, parents and staff data and will update or practices and procedures to keep up-to-date with current data protection regulations.
For further information about GDPR please visit the ICO website.
We have appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO) 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 is handled please contact our DPO: Carole Connelly.
