General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
New regulations come into force in May 2018 that will affect the way schools manage data.
In May, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and UK Data Protection Bill will bring about changes to UK data protection law.
The changes will mean that many schools, academies and multi-academy trusts will have to review the ways in which they handle data, manage information, and communicate about data usage with parents and children.
To support schools to comply with the new regulations, we have produced a series of resources to explain what the new regulations will mean, to help schools review and improve their data handling.
This includes the video below and a series of blogs that explain what the changes mean, and share some practical examples of how schools can review their existing data arrangements.
