Privacy & Data Protection

At Hunwick Primary we take data protection and privacy very seriously. We take many steps to ensure that data about children, parents and staff is handled appropriately and kept safe and secure. In school we use physical and electronic security to ensure that data is kept safe and only accessed by people who need it to do their job. We work some other companies and organisations where it is in the interests of the children or school, where we do this we carry out checks to ensure that they handle the data in line with our policies. 



In 2019 the data protection act was updated. The new laws provide some extra protection for people and makes it more important for organisations to make sure that data is handled properly.  While we have always taken great care with the data we control, we have stregthened our policies and procedures to be compliant with the new law. Our updated policies and privacy notices are available by clicking the links below. below.
