Statutory Guidance

GDPR -  Sharing Personal Data

A great blog here by the ICO.

https://ico.org.uk/about-the-ico/news-and-events/news-and-blogs/2020/03/community-groups-and-covid-19/ 

 

In summary, the key bit;

 

Keep it lawful

If you’re not sure whether you should be handling personal data, think about whether it falls into one of the following categories:

  • Would the person expect me to use their information in this way (legitimate interests)?

  • Have they given me their clear and unambiguous consent to use their personal information (consent)?

  • Is the person’s health or safety at risk if I don’t use their personal data (vital interests)?

If the answer is yes to any of these questions, then you can handle and share personal data.

DBS Checks

The Government have temporarily modified the current rules for the Standard and Enhanced DBS ID checking.  ID documents may be viewed via video link or scanned images used (rather than original documents) and verified via video link. Effective immediately. Read the official notice.

Advice for Supplementary Schools

Government lines for queries from parents in relation to school closures and use of out-of-school settings:

 

To control the spread of COVID-19, the Government has asked all schools to remain closed until further notice, except for children of key workers and vulnerable children; and, as of 23 March, every citizen has been asked to stay at home, except for one of four reasons:

  • Shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible

  • One form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk or cycle – alone or with members of your household

  • Any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person

  • Travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home.

 

The Government is also stopping all public gatherings of more than two people, except where the gathering is a group of people who live together, or where the gathering is essential for work purposes; and in addition to this has instructed the closure of a number of businesses and venues, including but not limited to: libraries, community centres, and youth centres; indoor and outdoor leisure facilities; and places of worship (except for funerals attended by immediate families). For the full guidance on “Staying at Home and Away from Others”, please visit: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/full-guidance-on-staying-at-home-and-away-from-others

 

The implications of this latest advice means that, with the exception of key workers and those with vulnerable children, parents should therefore be keeping their children at home, to limit the chance of the virus spreading. Parents should not be considering the use of alternative or supplementary education settings for their children while this advice is in place – where this would fall foul of these new rules. Anyone found to be failing to comply with the new rules could be fined

 

Further advice for parents and carers, on what the school closures means for them, can be found here at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/closure-of-educational-settings-information-for-parents-and-carers; and more information is to follow on how the DfE will support parents, including with home educating their children. We are currently hungrylittleminds.campaign.gov.uk

 

  • Government lines for queries from out-of-school settings:

Out-of-school settings, like other parts of the sector, should be following Government’s new rules on “Staying at Home and Away from Others” (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/full-guidance-on-staying-at-home-and-away-from-others); and encouraging others, such as parents with children that would usually attend their settings, to do the same.
