Privacy Notice & Data Protection Information


Under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) we are required to inform you of the information we hold on you and your child(ren), what we use it for, who we share it with, and for how long we keep it. This privacy notice (also known as a fair processing notice) aims to provide you with this information. If it, or any information linked to it is unclear, please contact the relevant school office, or the Willows Academy Trust Data Protection Officer as follows:

In order to keep this privacy notice up-to-date, we may amend it from time to time. When we do, we will revise the date at the bottom of the page.  If there are any significant changes in the way we treat your personal information we will contact you and we will place a prominent notice on our website.  


Our privacy notice and data protection responsibilities will be explained to you when your child becomes a pupil at one of our schools.  Our privacy notice is also available in hard copy at any time on request.  Please contact the relevant school office.


The COVID-19 Privacy Notice explains in what circumstances we may need to share your data and how we will manage the process in compliance with data protection legislation.  Please contact the school or the DPO if you have any questions or concerns.    

Data Protection Policy


A copy of our latest Data Protection Policy is also available here.  This explains in more detail how we process your information (collection, storage and disposal) as well  as how you can access your data (subject access request) or request amendment or deletion.   Please contact us if you require any more information. 


Please note that whilst every endeavour will be made to respond to requests promptly and within the timescales in force under the GDPR, in some cases there may be a slight delay due to school shutdown (holiday) periods.
