Sompting Village Primary School

Data Protection

You may be aware that from May 25th 2018, the rules around data protection changed. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) changes how we can use your personal data and keep it safe, and also strengthens your rights over your own data. The point of this is to make sure sensitive or private information about yourselves and your children stays safe. Whilst it is similar to the previous Data Protection Act in many ways, there are a few differences, so we need to make a few changes at the school in order to ensure we are compliant. 


One of these changes is that we have updated our privacy notice. You will find a link to the new privacy notice below. You will also find links to our data protection and freedom of information policies. 


Our data protection officer (DPO) is Claire Clements.
