Data Protection

HY Education provides an array of data protection compliance services, including an outsourced data protection officer service, to schools nationally. Our team of dedicated education solicitors have an extensive data protection knowledge bank and can offer unlimited advice as and when you need it. Data protection for schools is a complex subject, and we want to make sure you get it right.
You can expect the highest level of expertise, delivered on a human level, without any unnecessary legal jargon or complications. We are a schools-only education law firm, and consequently we understand legal issues that schools face. We have active knowledge of the relevant systems required, whether this be SIMS, CPOMS, ParentPay or the many other IMS and communication platforms which schools may use. HY Education is dedicated to helping you keep on top of your information, systems and privacy obligations, and making the processes significantly simpler for you.
Complex issues can arise when Data Protection isn’t handled properly, and can be costly to both your budget and a school’s reputation. We are here to assist you with any legal advice you need, and can act as your data protection officer should you require it. As a boutique schools only law firm, our focus is entirely spent on the needs of your school. Whether you are a small rural school needing a law specialist for the first time, or a large multi-trust academy looking to improve the processes you have in place, we can supply specialised data protection services.
