Video

The Information Commissioner’s Office have produced a video aimed at headteachers, deputy headteachers, school business managers and school governors. It discusses both data protection and freedom of information, focusing on the areas most relevant for schools. It includes key points covering the data protection principles, fair processing, security, disposal, policies, subject access requests, sharing, websites, photographs, CCTV, training, publication schemes, and responding to a FOI request.
