 Data Protection Law

You may be aware that from 25 May 2018, the rules around Data Protection are changing. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will change how personal data can be used and how it must be kept safe. The GDPR also strengthens your rights over your own data.

Saint Anne’s Catholic Primary School has always been committed to ensuring that personal and sensitive information about yourselves and your children stays safe, and whilst the GDPR is similar to the current Data Protection Act in many ways, there are a few differences, so we need to make a few changes in order to ensure we remain compliant. One of these changes is that we have updated our privacy notice. You can view our Privacy Notices and Policies.

 We seek consent from you for the use of photographs/videos of your children, and as part of our work to comply with the GDPR we would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. To do so, please contact the school office and ask for a Pupil Consent Form and return the completed form to the school office. If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you, please contact us by emailing: dpo@st-annes.bham.sch.uk.
