The Jisc Code of Practice for the Further and Higher Education Sectors on the Data Protection Act 1998 used to be the authoritative sector-wide source of guidance on data protection legislation, and was supplemented by other Jisc guidance such as that on research and data protection.  These have not (yet) been updated to reflect the provisions of the GDPR and DPA 2018 but still contain some useful background information.
