Privacy & Data Protection

The European-wide General Data Protection Regulation is being incorporated into UK law and will apply even when we have left the European Union. The reason for it is that we all need protection from data theft and identity theft. This has become more widespread in recent years with so much data being collected for organisations, governments and social media. So the new law should help us to protect everyone; children, parents/carers and staff members at Severne Primary School.

One of the main demands of the new law is to ensure transparency about what data we collect, what we do with your data, who it is shared with and how long we keep records for.

So we need to keep you informed.

This will be a developing part of the website to keep everyone updated on where we are up to as we try to be fully compliant with the law.

As a start, to fully comply with requirements on Privacy Notices and Consent we are providing these at a single location: If you would prefer a paper copy please contact the school office on 0121 706 2743.
