Data Protection


Our school aims to ensure that all personal data collected about staff, pupils, parents, governors, visitors and other individuals is collected, stored and processed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the expected provisions of the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018) as set out in the Data Protection Bill.

 The policy applies to all personal data, regardless of whether it is in paper or electronic format. Please click link for Data Protection Policy.

Talbot’s website is used to provide information about our school. This includes many photographs of school life. To ensure that this is being done appropriately:

  • We gain written consent from Parents/Carers stating that they are happy for photos of their children to appear on the school website. If we do not have this permission, we will not use photos of the pupils in question.
  • Similarly, we gain written consent from our staff, before we use their images on the school website.
  • We do not use photos that would embarrass an individual in anyway.
  • Lastly, if anyone is unhappy with an image that we have used of themselves or their child (for whatever reason), they should let school know and it will be taken down as swiftly as possible.
