How SchoolPro Can Help
SchoolPro TLC provides the role of Data Protection Officer (DPO) as a service for schools to demonstrate an enhanced level of data protection compliance to the Information Commissioner’s Office. Our DPO Service is intended to assist schools and multi-academy trusts (MATs) in complying with the requirement to appointment such a role with the responsibilities set out in the Data Protection Act 2018. Our staff are experienced school leaders so understand the data flows and need for data in different areas of the school. Our support as DPO includes a free online recording and reporting system for all relevant GDPR information, so you don’t have to pay additionally for another expensive system.
How it works
Our delivery of the Data Protection Oﬃcer role shall include:
A Cost Neutral Solution for GDPR in Schools
Our DPO service is cost-neutral compared to other, alternative solutions. For a school to appoint their own DPO, they will need to fund training for that individual and give them time to complete the role effectively. They will possibly also need to provide a financial incentive (such as a TLR) to them. Our experience and knowledge base (as well as economies of scale due to working with hundreds of schools) allow us to dramatically cut down these costs as well. For example, a school senior leader earning £50,000 per annum who is given an hour a week across the year to complete their DPO work is costing a school at least £2,000 per annum which is more than our most expensive rate.

Join schools from across the UK live on Zoom for the #BigStonePaint to mark Holocaust Memorial Day on 27 January 2022 at 9:30am.
This is your class’ chance to take part in Foundation Stones and paint commemorative stones that will become part of the new UK Holocaust Memorial and Learning Centre next to the Houses of Parliament in London.
Foundation Stones is inspired by the Jewish custom of leaving small stones on graves and every stone painted is a promise to remember the past and build a future free from hate.
Hear from Ed Balls and Lord Pickles, the Co Chairs of the UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation, about our new national memorial and why it is so important for young people to get involved. Learn more about our connections with the story of the Holocaust and subsequent genocides here in the UK.
To take part, book your place and provide every child with a small stone and some decorating materials - we recommend poster paints, paint pens or oil pastels.
Be part of something special this Holocaust Memorial Day and book your school’s place here.
