The Diocese of
Westminster Academy Trust


The Diocese of Westminster Academy Trust (the “Trust”) and its directors, local governors, members and employees are informed about, and comply with, their obligations under the General Data Protection Regulation (“the GDPR”) and other data protection legislation.

The Trust is a Multi Academy Trust with 11 academies and is the Data Controller for all the Personal Data processed by its academies and by the central team at the Trust.  For a list of the academies within the Trust, please follow this link: Our Schools

Everyone has rights with regard to how their personal information is handled. During the course of our activities we will Process personal information about a number of different groups of people and we recognise that we need to treat it in an appropriate and lawful manner.  This personal information is collected by the academies within the Trust but also by the central team who work for the Trust.

The type of information that we may be required to handle include details of job applicants,  current, past and prospective employees, pupils, parents / carers and other members of pupils’ families, directors, local governors, members suppliers and other individuals that we communicate with. The information, which may be held on paper or on a computer or other media, is subject to certain legal safeguards specified in the GDPR and other legislation. The GDPR imposes restrictions on how we may use that information.

The Data Protection Officer (the “DPO”) is responsible for ensuring the Trust is compliant with the GDPR and with this policy. This post is held at Trust level by Ms Micon Metcalfe, Chief Financial Officer, Postal address: The Diocese of Westminster Academy Trust, c/o The Douay Martyrs Catholic Secondary School, Edinburgh Drive, Ickenham, Middlesex, UB10 8QY.

Each Academy within the Trust has an Academy Data Protection Lead Officer who work in conjunction with the DPO of the Trust, which can been seen below.
