Data security is a hot issue. Many people in a school have to work with and share pupil data, and protection procedures need to be tight. Make sure everyone is following all the rules and guidelines. As last week's story in The TES involving a lost computer memory stick shows, this is an area where senior leaders can find themselves exposed by other people's mistakes.
Key point: Becta, the educational technology agency, has a website page on "Data handling security guidance for schools", updated on August 27, which will soon be supplemented by good practice guides.
