Data Protection for
Education.

The Data Protection Act is designed to protect the privacy of individuals. 
It requires any personal information about an individual to be processed securely and confidentially. In a school, this includes information relating to both staff and pupils. It is part of your legal duty to obtain, store, share, or use personal data in the education of pupils, it’s crucial that you do so securely, as personal data is sensitive and private. Everyone, adults and children alike, has the right to know what information is held about them who it is shared with and to feel confident that your school is protecting it.

What is a DPO?

It is a legal requirement to have a DPO, to avoid a conflict of interest its best to use someone who doesn’t process any data within your school.
