Independent Schools handle a significant amount of data about pupils, parents, staff and others. Much of this data is highly sensitive and can pose risks if it is not properly managed.
More people, including parents and staff, are becoming aware of the way in which the data protection legislation can be used, creating an additional administrative burden for schools. For example, parents may use their right to make a subject access request under the Data Protection Act to try and obtain information which might assist them in relation to a claim against the school.
Our data protection solicitors have considerable experience and expertise in advising independent schools on data protection and information law.
We can help you with all aspects of data protection compliance such as dealing with Information Commissioner investigations, security breaches, information sharing, CCTV, marketing issues, overseas transfers, and data sharing. We offer a number of data protection and information law services which we have tailored for independent schools.
