DfE guidance for schools on GDPR.
To prepare for the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into force in May 2018 DfE have produced this guidance https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/data-protection-toolkit-for-schools to help schools develop policies and processes for data management, from collecting and handling the data through to the ability to respond quickly and appropriately to data breaches.
DfE are asking schools and other interested parties for feedback. These responses will then be used to improve and update the guidance. Please send any comments by 1 June 2018 to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading ‘GDPR toolkit feedback’.
