SchoolPro TLC Limited was formed by school and education leaders with over 60 years of experience across all stages of education and in a variety of contexts. The company founders have worked to improve educational provision as both senior leaders and school governors.
The company was formed with the fundamental belief that funding for pupils is being taken out of the classroom to meet the ever-increasing demands of school leadership. Our aim is to provide cost-effective solutions that allow more funds to be deployed to directly improve the life chances of young people. In a context where schools struggle with budget and capacity issues at all levels, access to experience and knowledge that can be deployed across multiple schools and trusts gives education providers the ability to provide a flexible and responsive solution to capacity, skill or knowledge deficit problems. Our experience could enable you to direct more funding to the pupils to broaden the experiences they receive in school.
We provide services and support in the following areas:

Data Protection Officer Service
As an education provider, you have a responsibility to protect your students, staﬀ and school. But the responsibility isn’t just with protecting the physical form – it also comes down to the protection of any information or data you hold about said individuals and how it’s managed and controlled within your environment.
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.
We also provide a great deal of functions compared to some other purchased services, including completed Data Privacy Impact Assessments and compliance checking of supplier data privacy agreements.
HOW IT WORKS:
DATA PROTECTION AUDITS
One of our DPO's will carry out audits to provide an assessment of whether your schools are following good data protection practice. The audits will look at whether they are following your policies and procedures and make recommendations for improvements including any new guidance from the ICO. The audits can be undertaken alone or in conjunction with your DPO.
DATA PROTECTION PORTAL
In line with the Data Protection Act 2018 and in conjunction with the ICO published audit reports from MATs we have designed a portal that enables schools and MATs to hold and log all relevant data protection information in one place. This includes all of our policy and document templates as well as the logging and reporting of data breaches, subject access requests and data decisions. All school-specific documents are hosted here including audit reports and all logs are also easily downloadable for review at governor or trustee level.
The portal is split into five distinct sections:
Our online tool is hosted and secured on servers located in the UK. Our systems and processes anonymise all data where possible so it is not personally identifiable and we have a regular routine for deletion of any identifiable information.
DATA PROTECTION TRAINING / CPD
Aims of this session are:
All of our CPD sessions can be delivered to a whole staﬀ body or we offer bespoke sessions for different groups of staff, for example governors, senior leaders, admin, SENDCO, new starters, or as refresher training. For example, our Data Protection Training for SENDCOs and DSLs covers the following:
Our CPD sessions are delivered on site with staff, so they can fully engage and ask questions that are directly relevant to school staff and their specific role. As we are experienced school leaders, we do understand the need for all roles in school, so our advice and guidance is education- and role-specific.
Whole staff sessions run for about an hour, other bespoke sessions can vary in length depending on need. Where INSET time does not allow for one of our sessions, we will provide materials for all content and keep you informed of any relevant updates.
As we don't want to hold too much personal data, we do not hold lists of names of staff that attended courses but we will record when school training took place and the content delivered.
We provide all schools with a data sharing agreement to include necessary guarantees about data.
