School Policies

The Diocese of St Albans Multi Academy Trust is working closely with Thomas Whitehead CE Academy to demonstrate compliance with the new GDPR regulations.


The Trust Directors have appointed “Insight ICT Ltd” and “School Data Managed Ltd” to provide data protection services, including acting as Data Protection Officer for the Trust.  Each Academy within the Trust has been subject to a thorough ‘audit’ on current data processes that should already be in place, in relation to the Data Protection Act.


These audits will lead to the creation of an ‘assessment of risks to data protection’ which will be converted into a Trust data protection plan. This plan will allow Trust Directors to ensure that the Trust is able to demonstrate compliance with all aspects of current legislation. The Data Protection Plan will be reviewed by the Trust annually.


The Diocese of St Albans Multi Academy Trust will be writing to all parents in June 2018 with updated Privacy Notices. These will include how the Trust intends to use the data of pupils/parents, and the rights of data subjects, along with clear explanations regarding the strengthened rights (including Subject Access Requests (SARs) and the Trust’s agreed procedures for dealing with SARs.


The Trust’s Data Protection Officer who has access to the Trust’s Directors can be contacted via the Trust’s central office at:


Chris Beeden - email is:



Following admission to the Diocese of St Albans Multi-Academy Trust (DSAMAT), Thomas Whitehead CE Academy will continue to use its existing policies, which will be updated as required, until such point that they are replaced by DSAMAT shared policies.
