The Ocean Learning Trust takes data protection very seriously. During the course of our many activities we process staff and pupil data (which may be held on paper, electronically, or otherwise) and we recognise the need to treat it in an appropriate and lawful manner, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018. Our Privacy Notices, below, explain how we ensure we do this.
We are collaborating on a national level with DfE and other schools, MATs, LAs and system suppliers to create clear data management guidance for use by all schools in England; this will have a positive impact on the management of data.
Our Data Protection Officer is Sue Grey, Operations Manager. Subject Access Requests (SARs), Freedom of Information (FOI) requests and any queries regarding data protection should be directed to Sue.
