Cottons Farm Primary Academy is committed to protecting and managing the data we hold. We manage our data in line with the law – in particular, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which came into effect throughout Europe on the 25th May 2018.
Our school has contracted the role of the Data Protection Officer (DPO) out to an external company. We have done this to ensure that we are fully compliant and that any advice or guidance we receive from them is independent. You can contact our DPO in the following ways:
Name : Illuminate Learning Ltd
E-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org
Telephone : 01704 320507
You can find out more about the role of the DPO by downloading the guide at the bottom of this page.
As a school, we are required to have a formally approved Data Protection Policy which outlines how we manage all the data we hold. This is currently being drafted and will be available for download here shortly.
The GDPR establishes certain rights in relation to those whose data we hold. As a primary academy, these rights are applicable to those holding parental responsibility of any child who attends here. Two of the main rights are the right to (a) request a review of any data we hold on your child and (b) the right to have any incorrect data put ‘right’. If you would like to request either of these, please download the relevant form below OR collect one from the school office. Once completed, you can either hand it back into the school office or send it directly to Illuminate Learning ltd. The DPO can offer help and guidance on these requests.
Over the coming months, we will be updating and extending our data page on the website.
