General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) in schools

  1. How much of local authority budget in 2017-2018 has been allocated for resources to ensure the authority meets its GDPR statutory requirement by May 2018?

The Council does not have a specific budget allocated to meeting General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) compliance.  Devon County Council has a team of professional information governance practitioners who have been charged with monitoring General Data Protection Regulations compliance risks.  This team will work with services across the Council to ensure compliance is achieved.

  1. How much of this budget has been allocated to schools?

Schools are responsible for their own budgets and individual schools may allocate part of their own funds to help ensure GDPR compliance but we would not hold that information.

  1. Could I have the name and contact details of the person in the authority who is leading the GDPR compliance initiative?
