What is UK-GDPR?

UK-GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation.
UK-GDPR replaced the provisions of the European GDPR when the UK left the European Union.


What does this mean for schools?

Schools handle a large amount of personal data. This includes information on pupils, such as assessment information, medical information, images and much more. Schools will also hold data on school staff, governors, volunteers etc.

Schools will also handle what the UK-GDPR refers to as sensitive data, which is subject to tighter controls. This could be details on race and ethnic origin for example.


What is personal data?

Personal data relates to a living individual who can be identified from that data. Identification can be by the information alone or in conjunction with any other information in the data controller’s possession or likely to come into such possession.

The processing of data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (the “GDPR”).
