SFCA Webinar: The 2020 exam grading system and information requests under GDPR and FOIA

The 2020 exam grading system is likely to provoke an increase in the number of subject access requests (SARs) made by students wanting access to their assessment grades, rankings and other personal data. For schools and colleges that are public authorities, Freedom of Information requests are also likely, from journalists and other parties querying the operation and robustness of the process.

  • How long do we have to comply with a request?
  • Can we extend the deadline?
  • Can we delete records?
  • Will anonymisation and pseudonymisation of personal data reduce the number of SARs we have to comply with?
  • What practical steps can we take now to manage SARs?

This webinar provides the answer to these questions and more.
