Data Protection at New Invention Junior
The Data Protection Act 2018 is the law which governs how organisations, including schools use “personal data”, you may recognise this legislation as “GDPR”.
The aim of this law is to ensure all personal data is protected and organisations who work with such data are held accountable for its protection.
At New Invention Junior, this includes the information about, pupils and their families, our staff, volunteers, governors and any other individuals whose information we collect and use.
How We Use Your Information
The Data Protection Act encourages organisations that are responsible for using people’s information to make sure it is clear why this is necessary and how it is used.
