Data protection is the means by which the privacy rights of individuals are safeguarded in relation to the processing of their personal data. Therefore, schools must be aware of the legal duties placed upon them when collecting or processing personal data. The aim of this website is to provide an overview of data protection legislation and how it applies to schools.

The website offers sector specific guidance to assist schools in the area of data protection legislation and provides examples, model polices, codes of practice and useful links to other resources. The information provided on the website should enable schools as “Data Controllers” to formulate a relevant, meaningful and up-to-date Data Protection Policy and should provide schools with the information needed to ensure that such policy is supported by robust procedures that can be developed and regularly reviewed in line with best practice and good governance.
