The Data Protection Designated Lead is: Michelle Cheetham, Nursery Manager.

The Data Protection Designated Lead of The Railway House, being the data controller in terms of the Data Protection Act, has overall responsibility for ensuring records are correctly processed.  All staff within The Railway House nursery involved with such processing are aware of their duties and responsibilities in line with this policy.

The Railway House is fully committed to compliance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and the Data Protection Act 2018. The nursery will therefore follow the procedures which aim to ensure that all employees of the nursery who have access to any personal data held by or on behalf of the nursery are fully aware of and abide by their duties under the Data Protection Act 2018.

To operate efficiently The Railway House has to collect and use information about the children and families that attend and employees past and present. In addition, it may be required by law to collect information in order to comply with requirements of the central and local government.

This personal information must be dealt with sensitively and in a proper manner. However, it is collected, recorded and used, and whether it is in paper form or electronic or any other means. The Railway House nursery regards it highly important to treat personal information in the correct and lawful way in order to build a trusting relationship between themselves and parents. The nursery will ensure that it treats personal information lawfully and correctly in line with the principles set out in the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and Data protection Act 2018.

Who is responsible?

It is the responsibility of all staff members to ensure that personal information about the children, parents and carers and colleagues is not shared with individuals outside the setting.  The nursery manager has overall responsibility to ensure that all the information is kept safe and secure and in compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the GDPR 2018.

Individual staff members at The Railway House can be personally liable in law under the terms of the Data Protection Act 1998. They may also be subject to claims for damages from a person who believes that they have been affected because of inaccuracy, unauthorised use or disclosure of their information. A breech of data that has been done deliberately will be treated as a disciplinary matter, and serious breaches could lead to dismissal.
