From 25th May 2018, the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) was replaced by the Data Protection Act 2018 incorporating the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – meaning that the way we manage all personal data and information held within school changed.
Under current legislation we already have a duty of care to ensure that this data is kept safe and secure. And with the new Data Protection Act 2018 coming into effect we will have an increased responsibility to ensure this information – regardless of what form it’s kept in – is managed in the right way in compliance with the new Act.
