Data Protection Act 2018

Data Protection Act 2018


On May 25th 2018 the Data Protection Act came into effect across the EU. It is a new law that has been implemented in exactly the same way across all EU countries to create a level set of rules to ensure all data held and processed by organisations within the EU is secure and processed lawfully.

Public organisations, schools (and academies) are required to comply with the Data Protection Act. At St Thomas More Catholic Primary School we have been working  hard to become fully compliant.


Some of the things we have done are:


  • Made everyone in School aware – all the way up to our governors.
  • Online training during COVID-19 for staff and Governors
  • Put a team together to work on compliance with a designated Data Protection Coordinator
  • Reviewed how we collect data, store documents and amended policies.  


We have always highly valued and protected all of our child, parent and staff data and will continue to do so in the presence of the Data Protection Act.  


Thank You.
