Data Protection


Data Protection & GDPR Statement

Our school holds a lot of personal information – about pupils, parents, teachers etc, and General Data Protection Regulation is the law that says how we can hold, use and store it. We’ve always been very careful with the personal data we hold and we’ll continue to have the highest standards under the new laws.

We have a school wide Privacy Notice which tells you what personal information we collect and hold, what we do with it, who we share it with and how long we keep it as well as other important information.

We’ve updated our Data Protection Policy and you can read the policy on our website.


The law gives people more rights about how their personal information is handled. You can find out more about this on the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) website. If you want to use one of your rights please contact email our Senior Responsible Individual via email,, and one of our team will be in touch with you.


We have a Senior Responsible Individual: Mrs S Breen email:


Please rest assured that our school knows how important your and your child’s information is, and takes all appropriate measures to make sure it is kept safe and secure, processed lawfully and fairly and only shared with people that the law allows us to.




Data Protection at Park Road Academy Primary School


We are pleased to tell you that we have now subscribed to GDPR in Schools (GDPRiS). This system will help us to monitor and manage data protection in our school and assist us in complying with the law. We must take a whole-school approach to data protection to ensure we make our school a safer place for our students to learn. We are confident that using GDPRiS will give us all the knowledge and confidence to securely handle personal data and reassure us that we are doing everything we can to safeguard the children in our care.

Freedom Of Information Requests

Please email Mrs S Breen - at for any FOI requests.


Freedom of Information Publication Scheme

All public authorities, including schools, are required under the Freedom of Information Act to adopt a publication scheme that has been approved by the Information Commissioner.

There is currently one approved model publication scheme, which has been produced by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

Schools must adopt the ICO’s model scheme and make it publicly available, it is downloadable below.

The school will provide a paper copy of the information on the website.  


Our Published Guide to Information

Schools should publish a guide to information alongside the publication scheme.

The guide should specify:

  • the documents available
  • the format of the documents
  • any charges made for the information

Our guide to information is downloadable at the bottom of the page.
