GDPR and Data Protection at Highgate Wood School
Schools are already aware of the importance of maintaining privacy and confidentiality around the personal data they handle and the importance of that data being accurate, relevant and meaningful. At Highgate Wood School we have always been committed to protecting personal data and maintaining the privacy, security and integrity of the information we hold. The advent of GDPR has nevertheless provided an opportunity for us to review our systems and processes, including our policies, our communications systems, and our network infrastructure. As a result we have implemented enhancements to our network security and developed a new website to allow a smoother and more accessible communication with the wider school community. We have also updated our Privacy Notices and our Data Protection Policy so they are appropriate for the modern digital age and are compliant with the new legislation. These notices and policies can be found below.
