Use of Data

This Data Sharing Agreement policy is provided for schools to ensure that, as data controllers they have the ability to share data, and that they consider there to be appropriate measures in place, ensuring that the data is held securely and confidentially.

SchoolWorkSpace and its suppliers will be acting as ‘data processors’ as defined by GDPR. SchoolWorkSpace has taken all reasonable measures to ensure the safety and security of personal information and continues to review these measures on an on-going basis. SchoolWorkSpace will only process customer data in response to written instructions from the data controller unless required by law to act without such instructions and will tell the controller immediately if asked to do something infringing GDPR. We will only transfer personal data to a third country or international organisation on the written instructions of the data controller.

Data Security

The information from your school is held inside the SchoolWorkSpace web platform, which is hosted in Microsoft’s Azure platform in the UK South territory. The data in Azure is protected from exposure by multiple layers of fire-walling, authentication and physical access control. All employees, not already under a duty of confidentiality by law, will be required to complete a commitment to confidentiality prior to being given access to any customer personal data.

Data Retention

When a trial or subscription expires and a school is no longer a customer, after 2 months the school will be eligible for deletion and set as pendingDelete then in the next monthly delete cycle the school data will be deleted. This can be sooner on request. Obviously, account level information will be retained e.g. subscription history, invoices etc.


Your rights - accessing, erasing and updating your personal information

In most cases the personal data in SchoolWorkSpace is imported from the school's MIS so corrections or deletions are simply a matter of updating the source and this delete/edit will flow in the next data sync. Most other cases in SchoolWorkSpace the school is in full control of the data and it is all shown on the screen as the software is used. SchoolWorkSpace (data processor) will assist the School (data controller) in providing subject access and allowing data subjects to exercise their rights under GDPR. We will also assist schools in meeting its GDPR obligations in relation to the security of the processing, the notification of personal data breaches and completion of their DPIA.

Should you have any queries or complaints in relation to how we use your information please contact us at : gdpr @

You have the right to access the personal information we hold about you and to ask us to:

  • make any changes to ensure that any personal information we hold about you is accurate and up to date;

  • erase or stop processing any personal information we hold about you where there is no longer a legal ground for us to hold it; or

  • transfer any information we hold about you to a specified third party

If you have a GDPR related request e.g. a subject access request (SAR) then please email gdpr @

In accordance with GDPR requirements SchoolWorkSpace will, on request, submit to audits and inspections and provide the controller with whatever information it needs to ensure that we are both meeting our responsibilities and obligations to ensure the security of personal data. SchoolWorkSpace will tell the controller immediately if it is asked to do something infringing UK GDPR or other data protection law of the UK. (Article 28).

Should you wish to take any complaints or queries further, you have the right to contact the Information Commissioner's Office regarding such issues. Further information about how to make a complaint can be obtained at
