Parent/Carer Newsletter 6th December 2019

Christmas concerts

It’s that time of year again with Christmas concerts starting next week.

Can I please remind parents not to park in the car park when you come for the concerts.


Photographing children in the Christmas concerts

Parents please be advised that our school is committed to working within the Data Protection Act 2018 and the GDPR Regulations and take our obligations to safeguard our children and promote good practice extremely seriously. Whilst we have no legal basis to prevent you taking photographs/videos of your children please be advised that in doing so you will often capture the images of others who it may be detrimental for their images to be made available via social media sites. We would kindly request that you refrain from posting images of other children onto any social media sites and only use any images for your own personal use. The guidance from the ICO (Information Commissioners Office) would be any further use could be deemed as non-personal and therefore the purpose under which you originally captured the images would change and we feel it appropriate to advise you that you could be treated as a Data Controller in your own right and therefore would need to comply with the afore mentioned legislation and be accountable to ICO scrutiny.


Mini Enterprise Sale Wednesday 18th December 9:45am

Families are invited to attend our Enterprise Sale where all classes including nursery will be selling products they have designed through their enterprising ideas. The object of the Mini Enterprise Project is to make a profit and cover the loans that classes have to make their products.

Children can bring money to purchase items if parents/carers are not able to attend.
