The ultimate responsibility and accountability for data protection compliance sits with governors and trustees. They should have specific knowledge of data protection relevant to their role to ensure compliance with legislation and the ability to respond to any changes, working closely with the Data Protection Officer (DPO). If your school is found to breach GDPR rules, you may face a hefty fine and a visit from the Information Commissioner’s Office.
