The Data Protection Act places requirements on schools. It increases the monetary penalties for non-compliance.
The Information Commisioner's Office (ICO) provides a useful Guide to Data Protection for organisations.
All schools must pay a data protection fee at the correct tier. Please find more information on how to notify the Information Commissioner on the ICO website.
The ICO website also has a wide range of guidance available.
Essex County Council (IGS) can provide you with support. Find more information on the Information Governance Support website.
