General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

You may have heard that the law which manages how we use your information has changed.

The new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) law came into effect on 25 May 2018.
The aim of this law is to ensure all personal data is protected and organisations who work with such data are held accountable for its protection.


How We Use Your Information

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) encourages organisations that are responsible for using people’s information to make sure it is clear why we need your information and how it is used.

To help explain how your information is used we have published a Privacy Notice.

We are also taking the opportunity to review how we manage data and our GDPR compliance. Holy Trinity Catholic Primary is committed to the highest standards of information security, privacy and transparency.
