​GDPR

From 25 May 2018 the law around data protection has changed.

The old Data Protection Act (1998) will be replaced by the new Data Protection Act (20​18), which includes the European General Data Protection Regulation and the new European Crime Directive. This will have significant consequences for schools and other organisations.
