Data protection: toolkit for schools

Details

To prepare for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into force in May 2018 all organisations handling personal data, including schools, need to have the right governance measures.

This guidance will help schools develop policies and processes for data management, from collecting and handling the data through to the ability to respond quickly and appropriately to data breaches.

As this is new content we’re asking schools and other interested parties for feedback. These responses will then be used to improve and update the guidance. Please send any comments by 1 June 2018 to data.modernisation@education.gov.uk with the subject heading ‘GDPR toolkit feedback’.
