Guidance produced by the Dfe to support schools with data protection activity, including compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This document contains lots of useful school centric information about GDPR and what schools are advised to do. Capita have been part of the process in putting this together and they are now examining the detail and reviewing the document with the SIMS suite of products in mind.
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.
