DfE updated Data Protection


The Department has published an update to its guidance on data protection for schools to include a new section on subject access requests and one on handling information rights requests.



The policies and processes schools and multi-academy trusts need to protect personal data and respond effectively to a personal data breach.


This toolkit will help school staff, governors and trustees:

  • understand how to comply with data protection law

  • develop their data policies and processes

  • know what staff and pupil data to keep

  • follow good practices for preventing personal data breaches

This advice is intended for maintained schools and academies. Independent schools are welcome to use it where appropriate.
