SWGfL publishes new GDPR guidance for schools and colleges

In preparation for new GDPR legislation, which comes into effect on 25th May 2018, SWGfL, a partner in The UK Safer Internet Centre, has published advice and guidance to help schools and colleges when it comes to managing personal data.

The area of personal data protection is a current and high profile issue for schools, colleges and other organisations. It is important that they have a clear and well understood personal data handling policy in order to minimise the risk of personal data breaches. 

These resources offer schools and colleges advice and guidance to use alongside their own data protection policy on managing personal data.

Please Note: These resources are not intended to provide legal advice and the school / college is encouraged to seek their own legal counsel when considering their management of personal data.
