IMPORTANT INFORMATION: GDPR in Schools and Data Protection Education join forces to provide greater support to Norfolk schools

Driving data protection excellence 

Posted 25/09/2020 9.02am

Since the implementation of the GDPR Norfolk schools have made good use of the GDPRiS software and the DPO services from Data Protection Education to aid their journey to compliance.

The two organisations are pleased to announce their closer working partnership bringing together a depth of experience and understanding of schools to ensure that Norfolk schools can have peace of mind knowing that the information, guidance and support available to them will ensure their compliance with the GDPR.

Talking about Data Protection Education’s contribution, James England, Director of Data Protection Education, commented “We are proud to be working more closely with GDPRiS to help schools in Norfolk continue to meet and exceed the requirements of the GDPR. We passionately believe that together we will strengthen existing good practices in data protection by enhancing already sound procedures and methods”. 

Lawrence Royston, co-CEO of GDPR in Schools said “This formally brings together two organisations that are at the forefront of helping Norfolk schools monitor and manage their compliance. 
“The partnership has many benefits including having access to shared resources and expertise. The partnership recognises the importance of building on this collaborative approach that strengthens both organisations and enables us to better help schools ensure they meet the new data protection regulations.”

To hear from both GDPR Schools and Data Protection Education about the new partnership and the latest features available for monitoring and tracking Data Protection within your establishments, please join our webinar on the following dates/times:

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Digital Education Platforms

Updated 24/08/2020 11.28am

Offer extended to the 30th September 2020

Posted 13/05/2020 13:48

As you may have seen in the Government communications, they are recommending using either Google or Microsoft digital education platforms to support and deliver remote learning.

Other suppliers may be marketing you to take advantage of Government funding to move to one of these platforms.  As a valued customer of ICT Solutions, we can offer advice, guidance and provision your platform free of charge if you register your interest before 30th September 2020.

 

What is a digital education platform?

It's a place where your pupil' learning experience at home can continue as close to normal as possible. The platforms are purpose-built for remote learning in a way that a school website isn't.

In short, if you get set up on one of the platforms, you'll be able to:

  • Assign and assess work, providing feedback remotely
  • Communicate with staff, students and parents in real time, using written word, voice and video
  • Facilitate collaboration between groups of pupils and teachers

For either G-suite for Education or Microsoft 365 we can offer:

  • Set up your own tenant, ensuring security and compliance
  • Provision user accounts for staff and students
  • Migrate your existing emails across to your new platform/tenancy
  • Set up Microsoft teams or Google Classroom for all classes or as per your requirements
  • Enable Microsoft Teams video or Google Meet video calling and live meets 
  • Provision online secure shared files areas
  • Provide online training and webinars – 1 hour free training will be included in your set up package

To register your interest please complete this form and we will be in touch with you shortly to discuss your requirements  

We are working directly with both Microsoft and Google Education teams for remote support best practice.
