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.
