The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act (DPA) 2018 are a natural evolution of the previous Data Protection Act 1998, which they have replaced from May 2018. In response to this change we have worked with schools and settings to design a range of school centric GDPR Support Services.

    The support services have been devised for leaders and managers within schools and settings to help GDPR leaders and practitioners become compliant in an honest and realistic manner.

    Tailored support - manageable, based on working practices
