General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)The new EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force in the UK on 25th May 2018.
This regulation will replace the current Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and overhaul many existing data protection rules.
In order to prepare for this change it is important that schools familiarise themselves with GDPR and how they are likely to be affected.
For more information regarding these changes visit the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) website
We have also put together a booklet highlighting '10 steps for schools' to follow regarding GDPR.
