30-minute staff briefing: the key principles of data protection law, and how to stay compliant

Use this presentation to make sure all of your staff have a basic understanding of seeking consent from parents, pupils and staff under the UK so they can stay compliant with data protection law at your school.

It's adaptable to your school's context and is suitable for any member of school staff.

You'll cover:

  • What ‘consent for processing personal data’ means
  • When you do and don’t need to seek consent
  • How to properly seek consent

Please note that this briefing is designed to provide an overview for all staff. Certain members of staff, e.g. headteachers and data protection officers, are likely to need a more detailed understanding of the GDPR.
