GDPR Privacy Notice

Trinity Christian School is the Data Controller of the personal information you provide to us. This means the school determines the purposes for which, and the manner in which, any personal data relating to pupils and their families is to be processed.

In some cases, your data will be outsourced to a third party processor (e.g. the school that a child is transferring to); as the law requires the school to share your data. Where the school outsources data to a third-party processor, the same data protection standards that Trinity Christian School upholds are imposed on the processor.

Christopher O’Gorman is the Data Protection Officer. His role is to oversee and monitor the school’s data protection procedures, and to ensure they are compliant with the GDPR.
