GDPR (Data Protection)

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Data Protection governs how information about living people (such as pupils and staff) is collected and used. GDPR is about personal data. This means data which relates to an individual who can be identified from that information. It does not affect all the records the school holds because much of it will not contain personal data. GDPR became law on 25 May 2018. It has a number of changes from the previous Data Protection Act. The main new feature of data protection under the GDPR is an accountability principle, meaning that an organisation does not only have to comply, but it has to be able to demonstrate that it complies.


The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is the national regulator of data protection legislation. If there is something that we are doing that is not quite as it should be a complaint can be made to the ICO. The ICO website is a key place to find further information on GDPR. Here is the link: Guide to GDPR


At Oakham C of E we need to consider the data we hold and particularly :


  • Why we have it;
  • What it is used for;
  • Where it is stored;
  • Who it is shared with (if it is); and
  • How long we keep it for
