Data Protection
A Parents Guide 

Data Protection law in the UK changed in May 2018. It is now called the General Data Protection Regulation ‘GDPR’. The regulation is about protecting people in the modern information age. 

Below you will find links to our relevant policy documents. This includes a useful information guide.  

Should you have any questions or would like to discuss this further, please call the school office on 0207 723 4977 or alternatively email:

Freedom of Information

Publication Scheme 

All public authorities, including schools, are required under the Freedom of Information Act to adopt a publication scheme that has been approved by the Information Commissioner.

There is currently one approved model publication scheme, which has been produced by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

Schools must adopt the ICO’s model scheme and make it publicly available.

Our Published Guide to Information 

Schools should publish a guide to information alongside the publication scheme.

The guide should specify:

  • the documents available
  • the format of the documents
  • any charges made for the information
