On 25th May 2018 the GDPR regulation comes into force and will replace the existing legislation (Data Protection Act 1998) governing the use of personal data. Schools, academies and trusts have been advised by the ICO to take steps in preparation for the changes that will be introduced.
Turn IT on and data protection specialists Services 4 Schools (S4S) have joined forces to offer schools a unique and comprehensive range of GDPR services. These services will firstly support your school with achieving confidence and compliance in all matters of data protection, ensure all staff are trained on their responsibilities with personal data, and then support your ongoing GDPR compliance through the provision of a designated Data Protection Officer.
Our Services include:
- Complete Compliance Readiness Service
- Policy Writing Service
- Compliance Audit Health Check
- Staff Training
- Ongoing Data Protection Officer.
Turn IT on has been working in partnership with Services 4 Schools for a number of years. As specialists in data protection we are delighted to be working together to provide schools advice, support and reassurance around GDPR.
“The GDPR webinar was really useful; gave us all the important information we need to know without making it long-winded or feel like implementing what is required will be too onerous. It was very clear and I feel as a result that I understand what we need to do as a school”.
June Thompson, St Edburg’s CE Primary School, Oxfordshire
We are holding a series of remote webinars throughout the term to dispel some of the myths and red herrings about GDPR.
