On 25th May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into affect across the EU. The GDPR is a piece of EU-wide legislation which will determine how people’s personal data is processed and kept safe and the legal rights individuals have in relation to their own data. As public organisations, schools are required to comply.


St. Stephen's Catholic Primary School already has strong data protection procedures in place but these have now all been updated in line with GDPR. In addition to comply with GDPR, we need to show a paper trail and how we are compliant. The process of becoming fully GDPR compliant will take some time because it affects all aspects of school life. We already highly value and protect all of our pupil, parents/carers and staff data and will continue to do so in the presence of GDPR.


Our data protection officer is Mrs Angela Burton
