GDPR Notice

Sunday 27th May 2018

GDPR – General Data Protection Regulation 2016

On the 25 May 2018, the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998 was replaced by a new law called the GDPR (the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016). This law governs how we collect, use and share people’s information and provides greater rights to individuals and control over how their information is handled by organisations, including schools.

We’re taking steps to review and up date our processes around how we are handling your information and have appointed an external Data Protection Officer, to help us get ready for the changes. We will publish more information about how we are meeting the GDPR in due course, which will include a privacy notice explaining how we handle pupil information, what rights you have and how to exercise them and our policies around this.

If in the meantime you would like to know more about the GDPR and your rights, please visit the UK’s data protection regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office at www.ico.org.uk

Should you have any queries regarding the GDPR and our school, please email us at email: admin@abbeyschool.co.uk

What parents say about our school

Abbey Nursery is more than just 'childcare', as a parent I appreciate the consistency and experience of the teachers, and they way they really get to know the children as individuals, working with you as a parent to ensure the very best for each child, whatever their needs or abilities might be.

Jo Spurle

For us as parents, Abbey has made memories to cherish from the daily written descriptions of what Andrew has been up to, to cheering him along on his first sports day and on stage in the nursery play. Abbey nursery is, quite simply, a very special place.
