Data Protection

The Data Protection Act 1998 and General Data Protection Regulations 2016 aims to protect the privacy of the individual in relation to the personal information organisations may hold about them.


It established key principles that govern the collection, use and handling of personal information and provides individuals with important rights.   At Birch Primary School our policies are in line with the local authorities and aims to handle sensitive data in accordance with the 1998 Act and 2016 regulations.
