General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
You may have heard that the law which manages how we use your information has changed. The new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law will come into effect on 25 May 2018. 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.
Data Protection Officer
We have appointed a Data Protection Officer from Walsall Council to support our school with matters relating to Data Protection and the use of your personal information. Our Data Protection Officer is registered with the Information Commissioners Officer (ICO).
Data Protection Officer (DPO) : Paul Withers

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) encourages organisations that are responsible for using people’s information to make sure it is clear why we need your information and how it is used. To help explain how your information is used we have published a Privacy Notice, which you can read here.
All individuals whose data is held by us, have a legal right to request access to such data or information about what is held. A Subject Access Request Form is available for a request of data.
Coronavirus update: Parents and Visitors are advised that while we are working hard to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all school pupils and staff you may experience delays in receiving information or a response to a Subject Access or Freedom of Information Request. We apologise in advance if we cannot respond within the statutory timeframe and will endeavour to provide updates on any requests made during this time. We ask that you show understanding and patience as we work through these difficult times and we will do our upmost to ensure you receive the information you have requested where this justified and appropriate as soon as possible.
Information Asset Register (IAR)
An Information Asset Register is held by school and is regularly updated.
The asset register records assets, systems and applications used for processing or storing personal data across the school. The information within this register gives assurance that the school is meeting data protection obligations.
