Mrs DE Pollard, Headteacher of St Nicholas Primary School, Beverley on Wednesday 11 September issued a statement confirming that the schools CCTV system is operated in breach of legislation.
“At present we have not conducted a Data Privacy Impact Assessment (DPIA) on the schools CCTV system. The system was implemented prior to the introduction of GDPR and the requirement to carry out DPIAs in certain circumstances. The school however takes privacy extremely seriously and will be looking to carry out DPIAs retrospectively on key areas in which personal data is being processed.”
This should have been in place by 25 May 2018.
Given that the Chair of Governors, Ian Clark, has over 14 years experience as a Forensic Collison Investigator with Humberside Police I would have expected this to have been resolved over a year ago.
How many more East Riding schools are operating unlawful CCTV systems?
