Personally Identifiable Information - This can be data relating to an individual or data that allows that individual to be identified (directly or indirectly). Examples include: Names, Photos, Email addresses, Bank Details etc,

Lawful Processing

You must have a legal basis for processing any personal data and also have the user’s consent . Remember, children aged 13 and above have a legal right to issue or withdraw consent!

Data Storage and Processing

Have you ensured that your data is stored securely? Where is it held? Are the systems you utilise GDPR compliant? Your accounts are only as good as the passwords and authentication methods set up on them - have your users been trained in why a strong password is so important? Encryption, TLS, Anti Virus and Cyber Security are all absolutely essential to ensuring your compliance with GDPR.

If you want to ensure that you comply with GDPR it's best to consult with experts. We've helped countless schools get their policies and practices in line with GDPR so we understand the rules, the justifications required and the things that you are legally responsible for ensuring change. 

The best starting advice we can give, if you're going to get GDPR compliant without expert consultancy, is to audit all of the data that the school holds by speaking to each department about what data they have, how they got it, where they store it and why they use it.
