The new General Data Protection Regulation comes into effect in just under three months’ time.
Al Kingsley advises

On May 25, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect, which leaves schools little time to get prepared.

Until very recently, local authorities had not provided enough clear information to schools on how they should be tackling the issue. Thus, schools have been left to decipher what is fact vs fiction and what are the right and wrong ways to handle the requirements from the mixed messages they receive.

There are many voices on GDPR, from those warning schools about the risks to those which are simply scaremongering.

When we talk about legislation in education, it tends to be that the local authority or academy trust disseminates any important updates to its schools on any changes that need to be made.
