General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

At St Wilfrid’s Catholic High School and Sixth Form College, we aim to provide a positive, aspirational learning environment to support all our students in improving their life chances.  In order to achieve this we need to work with parents, students, academy councillors, trustees, the Local Authority, government departments and carefully selected companies.

Our school aims to ensure that all personal data received about students is collected, stored and processed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the expected provisions of the Data Protection Act 2018. As we take privacy seriously, personal data is only used in conjunction with providing the best possible care and education for your child, to support teaching and learning, monitor and report on your child’s progress and to provide appropriate pastoral care.

Due to the new GDPR regulations with effect from 25th May 2018, schools must now provide parents with the opportunity to opt-in or out of data sharing.  We will never release personal information to anyone outside of the school without your consent, unless the law permits it therefore, please can you complete the pupil data capture form, which your child will be issued with in the next few days.  This will ensure that the school has accurate information and parental consent as appropriate.  Please return this to school as soon as possible.  If you change your mind at any time you can let us know by completing a new consent form and forwarding it to us by post or e-mail.
