Safeguarding advice for Parents
From the 25th May 2018 the school is required to comply with new regulations to protect your personal data, known as: “General Data Protection Regulations” or GDPR.
Please read the enclosed Privacy Notice. We use your child’s personal information and any sensitive information we hold, in line with this Pupil Privacy Notice. We already comply with the Data Protection Act, and will be compliant with the General Data Protection Regulations.
We need to seek your permission to use your child’s information some additional ways. You will need to provide consent for each of your children, who currently attend the school.
You can download a copy of the consent form here at any time, if you wish to change your consent in the future.

Please see the attached poster for more information.
Parent Info provides high quality information to parents and carers about their children's wellbeing and resilience.
This service is free and ranges across a wide range of subject matter, from difficult topics about sex, relationships and the internet or body image and peer pressure to broader parenting topics like ‘how much sleep do teenagers need?’
In line with CEOP’s Thinkuknow programme, some of the content covers internet safety, but it all starts from the assumption that young people make little distinction between their online and offline lives and the issues for parents are often the same. The aim is to help parents help their children be discriminating, web-literate and resilient.
