General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applying from 25th May 2018
The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) will apply in the UK from 25th May 2018, changing the way schools manage and look after data and information; from paper in filing cabinets, through to the retention of student/staff records to monitoring day-to-day activities and security.
It is important that schools are aware of the changes and start planning their approach to GDPR compliance. Failure to comply with GDPR could see large fines issued for your school data controller.
GDPR is a complete change to current data protection and:
Strengthens & unifies data management
Makes it mandatory to report data breaches within 72 hours
3rd party data processors must be GDPR compliant
Mandates need for formal contract and/or SLA
Issue fines for non-compliance up to 20 million Euro's or 4% of global turnover
Gives control to individuals
The Information Commissioner Office (ICO) has issued "Preparing for GDPR - 12 Steps to take now" document which is included as part of this communication.
What are ICT Services 4 Education doing to support you through this change:
During September/October we will be arranging awareness sessions for schools and Academies. Details of dates and venues will be available soon and there will be a charge to attend these sessions.
We are working with a Supplier to provide a GDPR compliance portal service for schools to demonstrate compliance. This will be an optional service available as part of our portfolio.
We are working with all our Suppliers to ensure they will be GDPR compliant by May 2018 so we can provide you with this information.
Any queries please contact ICT Services 4 Education on 0845 303 3003 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
MIS Framework Update and Supplier demonstration days
Norfolk MIS Framework Update

Norfolk schools and academies are not obliged to use this framework and can make alternative arrangements if they so wish.
The Framework Suppliers are:
We have asked each supplier to produce pricing for a 3 year contract. It is anticipated that schools will join the contract from July 2017 to Sept 2018 dependent on when your current MIS contract expires.
The framework will be available by end of June 2017 and MIS supplier demonstration days have been arranged for you to view the systems available.
