There are two ways that HFL Education can help you and your school Data Protection Officer (DPO) to manage your Data Protection and GDPR compliance processes more effectively and efficiently.

Our GDPR Toolkit subscription service option provides access to GDPR and data protection management resources as well as support by phone or email.

If your DPO requires extra support, you can take advantage of our DPO Service, which offers a more bespoke solution, providing more practical guidance tailored to specific issues and challenges.

Every school is required by law to have a DPO but the specialised nature of GDPR and how it affects the education sector means many academies and trusts struggle to appoint the right individual. If you face a similar challenge in your DPO recruitment, we can act as your DPO until you successfully appoint.

What is HFL’s GDPR Toolkit service?

HFL’s GDPR Toolkit subscription service is competitively priced and has been created by experienced and expert specialists who have a comprehensive understanding of GDPR and data protection as it applies within a school setting.

Our GDPR Toolkit:

  • Offers access to a full set of resources to enable an educational setting to become GDPR compliant, including templates for policies, privacy notices plus guidance and advice

  • Is regularly updated in line with requests from users or changes to the regulations or the guidance provided by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO)

  • Provides email and telephone support service for DPOs/Data Protection lead

  • Offers regular GDPR newsletters to inform DPOs about news, provide useful hints and tips, and answer frequently asked questions

What is HFL’s GDPR DPO Service?

We provide a full service to monitor all aspects of GDPR implementation and compliance, including bespoke guidance and advice for handling breaches and responding to information requests.

In addition to the GDPR Toolkit and email and telephone support, you’ll benefit from:

  • HFL acting as the official DPO for your school if you don’t already have one

  • Onsite and/or remote sessions for you and your DPO to discuss policies and procedures

  • An action plan to ensure ongoing compliance

  • Crisis leadership and coordination and communication with the ICO and stakeholders where required

  • Access to training in the form of live sessions and pre-recorded. Having the choice of these options means you get support on a basis that best serves your needs.
