GDPR & Data Protection

On the 25 May 2018, the UK’s Data Protection Act 1998 was replaced by a new law called the GDPR (the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016). This law governs how we collect, use and share people’s information and provides greater rights to individuals and control over how their information is handled by organisations, including schools.


At Yew Tree Primary School we are taking steps to review and up date our processes around how we are handling your information and have appointed an external Data Protection Officer, to help us get ready for the changes. We will publish more information about how we are meeting the GDPR on this page as necessary.

Below you will find a copy of the letter, privacy notices and consent form which you received in June 2018.

In the meantime you would like to know more about the GDPR and your rights, please visit the UK’s data protection regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office at
