GDPR is coming …..


The new GDPR regulations will take effect in just one month.

From 25th May all organisations – including schools and academies -  will be required to comply with new requirements which are intended to safeguard the personal data of individuals.

Schools / Academies will be at different stages in their preparations for these changes – so with a month to go until the new regulations take effect – we thought it would be timely to signpost readers to some of the key sources of information and support.
