From the 25th May 2018 The Data Protection Act will be replaced by the GDPR - meaning that the way you manage all data and information in your school will change.
Schools currently generate a wealth of information and this has been governed by the DPA to date. The new GDPR will mean some significant changes to the current regulations - including a significant increase in penalties for non-compliance.
Private schools, academies and free-schools are particularly vulnerable under this new law, but all schools are likely to fall foul of these legal changes unless they are prepared.
Our new half-day courses will cover the following areas :
- what the GDPR is
- time-scales for implementation
- legal duties for compliance
- how it differs from the DPA
- raising awareness
- accountability and data governance
- communicating the changes to parents
- legal grounds related to personal data
- gaining consent for data
- the rights of individuals
- rights of individuals to see records
- personal data breaches (penalties)
- children as ‘vulnerable individuals’
- data transfers to other schools in the UK and abroad
- governors expectations
- policies and practice
All course attendees will receive :
- an action plan for implementation
- guidance for Governors
- factsheet for parents
- draft policies for use in school
- legal summaries
The courses are priced at £125 per person. The dates and venues are as follows :
17th May - PM
18th May - AM
24th May - PM
25th May - AM
