General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Information

 

Belmont Community Primary School collects, holds and uses information about pupils and adults connected with the school. Under the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (General Data Protection Regulation), data about living individuals is known as personal data. The Regulation puts in place numerous safeguards for the use of data about individuals and is designed to strengthen the safety and security of all data held within an organisation, making sure processing and storage procedures are consistent. 

 

Belmont Community Primary School is the 'data controller' for the purpose of the data protection law and has a statutory duty to comply with the requirements of the GDPR as it collects data about pupils and adults associated with the school for school business. We comply with your right to be informed about how the school uses any personal data that we hold by providing ‘privacy notices’, (sometimes called ‘fair processing notices’), to individuals where we are processing their personal data. These privacy notices explain how we collect, store and use personal data. Belmont is in the process of appointing a Data Protection Officer (DPO).

 

All of the information we hold on individuals follows the six key principles:

  • Fair, lawful and transparent.
  • Collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes.
  • Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary.
  • Accurate, and where necessary, kept up to date.
  • Kept in a form which permits identification for no longer than is necessary.
  • Processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security.

 

Under the GDPR; 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.

 

If you have any queries regarding our policies and GDPR please contact the school office.
