Information Governance
Information Governance covers the important areas of Data Protection, Information Security, Freedom of Information, Records Management and Information Sharing. With the Information Commissioners Office having the power to fine organisations who do not keep data safe, as well as a public who are much more aware of their information rights, Information Governance is a critical area for schools to get right.

14 Feb
This is an example template of the type of EHC Request Form that we will be using whilst the EHC Hub is in development. It has been written by Open Objects, the EHC Hub developers and therefore mimics what is likely to be the format for the EHC Hub. We have chosen to use this form so as not to introduce too many changes between now and going live across the borough with the Hub. I will let you know when the EHC Request Form goes live. This is just an example template for those interested in seeing what it will look like. More to come.
