The policies and processes schools and multi-academy trusts need to protect personal data and respond effectively to a personal data breach.

This toolkit will help school staff, governors and trustees:

  • understand how to comply with data protection law
  • develop their data policies and processes
  • know what staff and pupil data to keep
  • follow good practices for preventing personal data breaches

This advice is intended for maintained schools and academies. Independent schools are welcome to use it where appropriate.
