What will I learn?

Your main responsibilities and how you can start making the required changes towards GDPR compliance

You'll learn about the 6 lawful bases for processing data and which apply to schools and colleges

You'll learn about the role of your appointed Data Protection Officer, or DPO

You'll get tips and tricks on how to make yourself less vulnerable to Data Breaches

The EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) add extra responsibilities to the Data Protection Act 1998 on the 25th of May, 2018. All schools that handle personal data must ensure that they are aware of the new rules and must examine the processes they currently have in place to ensure they continue to comply with the law.

Our resources have been developed in partnership with leading experts at Freeths, Data Protection Education and GDPR in Schools. We are grateful to them for their support in pulling these great resources together.

We’re sure you’d be pretty devastated at the thought of being considered “murky”. Your school’s a pillar of your local community after all. So embrace the transparency requirements of GDPR and let children, young people and their parents and carers, as well as staff and governors and appropriate stakeholders, know that reasonable checks and balances are in place to protect their data.
