Data Protection Guidelines for schools are now available on this new website: www.dataprotectionschools.ie
The website has been developed by the management bodies with the assistance of the Department of Education and Skills.
The aim of this website is to provide an overview of data protection legislation and how it applies to schools.
The website offers sector specific guidance to assist schools in the area of data protection legislation and provides examples, model polices, codes of practice and useful links to other resources. The information provided on the website should enable schools as “Data Controllers” to formulate a relevant, meaningful and up-to-date Data Protection Policy.
Irish language versions of the documents will be made available shortly.
