Welcome – helping schools prepare for GDPR.

The video below will provide a brief (5min) introduction to help get things started.

Note: A low quality video (240p) will use around 1.6MB per minute, but a high definition HD (1080p) video will use as much as 12MB per minute. YouTube’s default is set to 480p.
These videos are in high definition.
If you are on a low data tariff click the cog in the bottom right of the video and select a lower quality (240p for example) to save your bandwidth allowance.

The education section of the ICO website with useful schools related content (including a video series from the DOE) is here.
A key part of preparing for the changes in May is to review where you are from a data and process point of view – Data Audit.
The other two documents below are templates to help prepare for this by collecting information about where you are in the process.
Combined with an analysis of the data you collect and handle (process)  these will form the information gathering phase of the change.
They are based on the ICO online assessment but allow you to keep, save and edit the record as you go.
This helps to provide a record of your audit process and allows future review and comparison.
They can be download by right clicking the images below.
