There are a number of main reasons for registration. Information Management is currently working with ICT colleagues to implement a solution called Orchestra (formerly United) that will provide weekly data between schools and local authorities. Most schools have signed the installation agreement, but KMISA provides a framework for the exchange of information in this process. The regular exchange of electronic student information in Kent schools (in accordance with school census information) supports education and safety processes and meets your legal obligation to inform us that students are removed from the school`s role and participate in a non-standard transition point. The Kent and Medway Information Sharing Agreement (KMISA) offers openness and transparency in the exchange of information.

The Kent and Medway Information Sharing Agreement (KMISA) offers openness and transparency in the exchange of information, as well as good governance and support that helps us share personal information legally, safely and securely.

KMISA is monitored and audited annually by the Kent and Medway Information Partnership (K-MIP) and was rewritten last year to comply with the RGPD. This is not a KCC-specific agreement, but a partnership agreement between Kent and Medway.
The goal is to have all public services within the county as signatories. KCC is only one of many signatories, but it is actively committed to registration, as it ultimately helps children and families. Many schools in Kent have been part of the previous version of KMISA, but this has not been the case since the introduction of the RGPD, so it is important that schools are with the new version.
