Data Protection Officer

Page last updated: 01/07/2019

Essex County Council's Information Governance Team is providing a Data Protection Officer (DPO) service to schools in Essex (including Southend & Thurrock). Information Governance Support (IGS) is the Team's trading name

The General Data Protection Regulations (2016) within the Data Protection Act (2018) require that all schools have this statutory role. The law allows:

  • staff within your school to undertake this role (providing certain criteria are met)
  • to appoint a DPO between a group of schools, or
  • the service to be delivered by a provider such as IGS
