Data Protection

Data plays an important part within our education system. It provides the opportunity to effectively monitor the progress of learners, it allows evaluation within evidence-based practice, and it provides the opportunities for huge efficiencies in how school life operates.

As you may be aware, new regulations on how personal data is managed and stored come into effect on May 25th 2018. At Brookland Infant and Nursery School we have followed advice from Hertfordshire County Council and Herts for Learning to ensure we are ready to meet and comply with these regulations, ensuring we adhere to a robust system for managing the information we use and share.

Please find below policies and resources designed to provide you with all the information you need.

If you have any queries or concerns please email:

Jane Allen – Business Manager – sbm@brooklandinfants.herts.sch.uk

Dave Smith – Data Protection Officer – dpo@brooklandinfants.herts.sch.uk

Requesting access to your personal data

Under data protection legislation, parents / carers have the right to request access to information about them that we hold (“Subject Access Request”).

To make a request for your child’s personal data, or be given access to your child’s educational record, contact Mrs Jane Allen (School Business Manager) or Mr Dave Smith (Data Protection Officer) using the contact details above, although any written request for personal data will be treated as a Subject Access Request.
