At the recent headteacher meetings, I promised primary headteachers that I would produce a guide for schools to help ensure that you are meeting the CURRENT data protection regulation requirements. The guide is in the form of a checklist, and I have also created a specific page on the EPHA website which includes model policies, examples of privacy notices and so on. https://essexprimaryheads.co.uk/info-and-documents/data-protection/
I have written a series of “7-minute staff meetings” on data protection to help you meet the requirement to train staff. There are three available, on:
- Data Protection principles”,
- “information sharing”, and
- “records management and data security”.
These can all be found on the Seven-minute staff meeting page - https://essexprimaryheads.co.uk/info-and-documents/seven-minute-staff-meetings/
A guide to meeting the GDPR will be produced next term, when we have had definitive guidance from the DfE about what schools must do to meet the regulations.
