Data protection advice service

Overview

Every school is responsible for the personal data that they process. Schools should put in place thorough but balanced measures to meet their data protection obligations. These measures will help to promote confidence in the way you use personal data.

We can support your school and Data Protection Officer to implement and maintain these measures. We focus on the practical application of data protection in a school environment. Our services help to demonstrate accountability, transparency and governance.
