This privacy notice has been written to inform governors,  and volunteers at Warmsworth Primary School about how and why we process your personal data.


Who are we?

Warmsworth Primary School is a data controller as defined by the UK GDPR.  This means that we determine the purposes for which your personal data is processed and the manner of the processing.  We will only collect and use your personal data in ways that are compliant with data protection legislation.

The school has appointed Veritau Ltd as its Data Protection Officer (DPO).  The role of the DPO is to monitor our compliance with the UK GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018 and advise on data protection issues.  If you would like to discuss this privacy notice or our use of your data, please contact Veritau or Mrs Jane Hilling (School Business Manager) or Mrs Nicola Church (Office Manager).

What is our lawful basis for processing your information?

Under the UK GDPR, it is essential to have a lawful basis when processing personal information.  We normally rely on the following lawful bases:

  • Article 6(1)(c) - legal obligation
  • Article 6(1)(e) - public task

There may be occasions where our processing is not covered by one of the legal bases above.  In that case, we may rely on Article 6(1)(f) - legitimate interests.  We only rely on legitimate interests when we are using your data in ways you would reasonably expect.

For the processing of personal data relating to criminal convictions and offences, processing meets Schedule 1, Part 2 of the Data Protection Act 2018 as below:

  • (10) Preventing or detecting unlawful acts

Some of the information we collect about you is classed as special category data under the UK GDPR.  The additional conditions that allow for processing this data are:

Who do we obtain your information from?

We normally receive this information directly from you, for example via documents and other records and information supplied by you in the course of your application for the role or a period of volunteering.  However, we may also receive some information from the following third parties:

  • Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

How long do we keep your personal data for?

We will retain your information in accordance with our Records Management Policy and Retention Schedule. The retention period for most of the information we process about you is determined by statutory obligations. Any personal information which we are not required by law to retain will only be kept for as long as is reasonably necessary to fulfil its purpose.

We may also retain some information for historical and archiving purposes in accordance with our Records Management policy.


International transfers of data

Although we are based in the UK, some of the digital information we hold may be stored on computer servers located outside the UK.  Some of the IT applications we use may also transfer data outside the UK.
