Helping schools with data protection compliance

Here at the South West Grid for Learning and the UK Safer Internet Centre (SIC), we know that schools work to achieve compliance through a variety of means. Some rely on local authority staff, or the Information Commissioners' Office for support, advice and training. What is clear is that practice remains inconsistent and that data breaches are occurring.
