Data Protection law is changing on 25 May 2018. This will include the introduction of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

GDPR will impact all organisations, including public authorities and schools and the new legislation will replace the 1998 Data Protection Act.

To ensure that staff, schools and governors understand and are prepared to meet the new requirements of new the Data Protection Law ‘ea Think Data’ has been developed.

This is an online awareness campaign which has been developed in partnership with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) that will provide support material and detailed guidance in preparation for the introduction of GDPR.           

This webpage has been developed for all staff, schools, youth groups, governors and education sector stakeholders to facilitate in preparing for GDPR, and will be the hub for our online support resources which will be updated on a regular basis.
