Education GDPR Guidance Pack for Academies and Maintained Schools

Our GDPR Pack provides you with both the guidance and the template documents you need to implement the GDPR, specifically designed for schools.

The first section contains general guidance about carrying out a GDPR compliance project. It is specific to education and is designed to be of practical use to users who do not have extensive data protection knowledge. The style is as plain English and user-friendly as possible. The pack contains information about auditing, the DPO role, children and consent and biometric data (cashless catering use) as well as information about the legal basis for processing. For more detailed information, links to further resources are provided.
