The GDPR has been in force since 25 May 2018. This regulation dictates how the school should handle the personal data of its students. The school is obligated to record certain personal data which is recorded by the administration of the school.
At our school, the privacy of our students and their personal data is a top priority, and their personal information is treated with care. The recording and use of personal data are limited to information that is strictly necessary for education and the data is stored securely. Access to the data is also limited and only authorized employees have access to the data.
The school also uses digital learning materials. The suppliers of these learning materials have received very limited student data. The school has made strict agreements with its suppliers about the use of personal data so that misuse is prevented. Student information is only shared with other organizations when there is parental consent unless such sharing is required by law.
Sometimes, the school also processes other personal data, such as a photo for the website or a video recording of a lesson for the assessment of a teacher. Parental consent is always requested for the use of such information. As a parent, you also have rights. You have the right to view your child’s personal data.You also have the right to improve/update, supplement or have the stored personal data removed (e.g., if your personal data is processed on the basis of consent, you have to remove your consent).
Finally, you can also object to the further processing of personal data due to special circumstances. You can send your request to view the personal data of your child to the direction of the school, via e-mail. Please note that the GDPR obliges the board under which the school falls (Laurentius for Primary and Lucas Onderwijs for Secondary) to appoint a Data Protection Officer who will monitor compliance with the GDPR. If an irregularity occurs with regard to the processing of personal data.
