What does this mean?
Changes to the law on how we use your information came into effect on 25th May 2018. The aim of the new European General Data Protection Act (GDPR) is to protect personal data and hold organisations that hold data accountable for its protection.
Data Protection Officer
Bantock Primary School has appointed a Services 4 Schools Data Protection Officer (DPO) to support us with matters relating to Data Protection and the use of your personal information.
Our DPO is registered with the Information Commissioners Officer (ICO).
Right to Access
Individuals have the right to access copies of their personal data that the school is processing. This is known as “Subject Access”.
An individual is only entitled to their own personal data, and not to information relating to other people. The school has a maximum of 30 days to respond to the Subject Access Request.
If we are processing your personal data, you will be entitled to receive:
- a confirmation that we are processing your data;
- a copy of your personal data;
- additional information about how your data is being used and who it is shared with.
If you have a question about how your personal data is used in school, or would like to make a formal request, you can contact our Data Protection Officer through the school office at DPO@bantockprimaryschool.co.uk or by writing to the below address and marking your envelope “For the Attention of the Data Protection Officer”.
Freedom of Information (FOI) requests should be made to the school directly:

How We Use Your Information
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) ensures that organisations, such as schools, that are responsible for using data about people, make it public about what information is used and how.
To help explain this, you can read the Privacy Notice that you can download on this page.
We are also taking the opportunity to review how we manage data and our GDPR compliance. Bantock Primary is committed to the highest standards of information security, privacy and transparency.
You can find more information about how we manage personal data and other forms of information in the following policy documents:
