With the launch of the Test and Trace app, many schools are asking visitors to use this before coming into buildings. To best support the NHS Test and Trace system for visitors, you can easily produce scannable QR codes for your reception from the GOV.UK website.
If you do need QR codes for visitors to your sites, these can be created at https://www.gov.uk/create-coronavirus-qr-poster.
Schools are generally supporting Test and Trace in other ways in the event of positive results within the staff and student body. We would recommend that your communities know that this is happening and have provided a Test and Trace privacy notice addendum to sit alongside your normal privacy notice on the website. This document can be downloaded here.
We feel this represents the situation for the majority of schools but please do make sure that it reflects your own local situation and legal basis.
Please also be aware of recent updates and additions to our service:
- Online education and role-specific Data Protection training is available free for all our schools.
- Confidential data destruction services are available.
- A range of other school leadership and support services that may be of assistance at this time. https://www.schoolpro.uk/our-service/
Please contact us if you do have further questions at GDPR@schoolpro.uk.
Please continue to ask if there is anything further that we can do to support you at this time.
Stay safe and healthy,
