South Pennine Academies

General Data Protection Regulations Policy (GDPR)

South Pennine Academies is required to keep and process certain information about its staff members and pupils in accordance with its legal obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018.

South Pennine Academies may, from time to time, be required to share personal information about its staff or pupils with other organisations, mainly the LA, other schools and educational bodies, and potentially children’s services.

This policy is in place to ensure all staff and governors are aware of their responsibilities and outlines how the Trust complies with the following core principles of the GDPR.

Organisational methods for keeping data secure are imperative, and South Pennine Academies believes that it is good practice to keep clear practical policies, backed up by written procedures.

This policy complies with the requirements set out in the GDPR, which came into effect on the 25th May 2018. The government have confirmed that the UK’s decision to leave the EU will not affect the commencement of the GDPR.
