GDPR Data Protection

The GDPR is the ‘General Data Protection Regulations’.  It supercedes the Data Protection Act.  This is a new law that is being implemented across all EU countries to ensure that all data deld and processed by organisations is secure and processed lawfully.

It came into effect on the 25th May 2018.  ANY organisation that holds data will need to comply.


The school is currently working towards compliance for the GDPR and this page will be updated with data policies and key information.


Since Septepmer 2017, to ensure that the school is ready for GDPR, the school has provided training for key staff, held briefing sessions for staff and Governors, begun to review all of our data and documents, and updated the data protection policy.


The process of becoming fully GDPR compliant will be a long one because it affects all aspects of the School. We do already have strong Data Protection policies and protections but these now all need to be updated in line with GDPR. Furthermore the BIG change with GDPR is that we now have to produce a lot of documentation to prove our compliance. This is what is going to take us a long time! But rest assured, we are working on it to make sure that GDPR will be central to our day-to-day culture. We already highly value and protect all of our student, parent and staff data and will continue to do so in the presence of GDPR.​


The school Data protection Officer is the Deputy Headteacher, Mrs J. Lisic.  If you have any questions about data protection please contact Mrs Lisic via the school office.

(0161 770 3171   or office@st-hughs.oldham.sch.uk).


For further information about GDPR please visit the ICO website.
