Our Data Protection Officer for Schools - find out more now
As part of North Tyneside’s family of services, the Information Governance Team within Law and Governance are well placed to work with each other and colleagues in other services to ensure that we offer you joined up support based upon our knowledge of the schools in North Tyneside. We will actively engage with you to ensure that the services meet your needs.
In Information Governance terms, schools are separate legal entities. Responsibility for compliance with Information Governance legislation rests with each school’s governing body. It is vital that all staff, governors and other users of information held by schools understand their rights and responsibilities as financial and reputational penalties may result if legal requirements are breached. In addition, a new legal requirement means that each school is required to have a named Data Protection Officer who is appropriately trained and has expert knowledge of information governance legislation.
The Information Governance Team offers a comprehensive, high quality service including the provision of a named Data Protection Officer and advice and support to schools on all information governance matters.
The Data Protection Officer and their team will work with your school in relation to a wide range of information governance matters to ensure good practice is in place, including in relation to:
provision of a named Data Protection Officer
acting as the point of contact for the Information Commissioner’s Office
