Under data protection law, individuals have a right to be informed about how the school uses any personal data that we hold about them. We comply with this right by providing ‘privacy notices’ (sometimes called ‘information notices’) to individuals and we also make this available on the school website.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) sets out the law relating to data protection and this privacy notice and the way we handle your personal data is all carried out in accordance with that law.
Under the GDPR anyone who holds and controls the way in which data is used is known as a data controller. We, Beech Hill School, are a ‘data controller’ for the purposes of the data protection law.
