Policies / GDPR

Somerfords’ Walter Powell Primary School has a comprehensive set of policies, which are regularly reviewed and updated.  Since converting to an academy in September 2015, many policies have been provided centrally by DBAT; others are produced locally.  A Joint Local Board has now been established, bringing together the governance of Walter Powell with that of Seagry and Christian Malford Primary Schools.  As local policies are reviewed, we are looking to bring them together across the three schools where it is appropriate to do so.

Data Protection and GDPR

The school has to keep certain information abouts its employees, pupils and others to allow it to monitor such things as performance, achievements and health and safety.  To comply with the law, information must collected and used fairly and not disclosed to any other person unlawfully.  The Data Protection Policy sets out how the school complies with the Data Protection Principles as set out in the Data Protection Act of 2018.
