Please note if you wish to withdraw your child from sex education this will only be accepted once the relevant withdrawal form has been completed and submitted to the Headteacher. The form can be located in Appendix 3 of the Sex and Relationships Education Policy on the school’s website.
During the school year there may be opportunities to publicise some of
the activities that your child is involved with. This may involve photographing
or filming students for:
- Use in publicity materials including internal school displays, newsletters, marketing materials
- Use on the school’s or trust’s website and social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube)
- In the media (newspapers, TV, radio)
As a school we welcome these opportunities and hope that, as parents,
you do too.
Photography or filming will only occur with permission and under the
supervision of a member of school staff.
Where filming or photography is carried out by the media, students will
only be named when there is good reason e.g. celebrations & achievements
etc. A child’s home address will never
Please note that web applications mean that information is available
worldwide, including countries where there is no data protection legislation.
To comply with the Data Protection Act 2018, we need your permission before
taking images of your child. The permission will last for the whole of your
child’s education at this school. You can ask to see the images of your child held by the
school and you may withdraw your consent
at any time. This request should be made in writing to your child’s Student Manager.
Please read our General
Data Protection Regulation policy (available on our website or via the school
office) and indicate whether you agree to your child’s images being taken. You
have the option to indicate whether you consent to your child’s images being
taken and used for different school related purposes.
For data protection and safeguarding purposes,
we ask that parents who take photographs or recordings of any school
productions involving anyone else’s children, do not upload these images and
videos to social media and youtube accounts.
understand that any images or voice recordings I might take at school events must not be used
inappropriately and cannot be shared publicly (including being
uploaded to social media) without suitable consent from everyone in them.
(including painkillers), which your child brings with them, must be clearly
labelled with their name and dosage and handed into the group leader.
Under normal circumstances, your child would then need to request these as
required and self-administer. However, it may be considered safe
and practical for your child to hold small supplies of some medication (such as
creams and nasal sprays) themselves. If so, this must be discussed and agreed
with the group leader in advance. Please note that any emergency
medication (such as inhalers, epi-pens, insulin, etc.) must be brought to the
attention of the group leader. However, the young person would normally hold
and take responsibility for these themselves for immediate use when required.
In all instances we will only allow a child to attend a
trip if, where relevant, there are two epi-pens/inhalers. Your child
carries one and the group leader will take a second emergency
epi-pen/salbutamol inhaler, which we hold in our Student Services Centre. We
ask parents to ensure that your child carries their epi-pen/inhaler at all
times. Epi-pens held in school should be replaced, as necessary, by parents.
In exceptional circumstances,
parents can make special requests for school personnel to administer
medication. On such occasions, parents need to make a request in writing,
to the group leader, well in advance of the trip departure date. Approval
from the group leader and the Headteacher will be required. When
reasonably practical to do so, and on the voluntary agreement of the staff
concerned, special arrangements will be made.
We use the information we hold on our
school’s Management Information System, including medical information and
emergency contact details, for your child when they participate in any
Educational Trip or Visit. It is of paramount importance that all
information held on the school’s Management Information System is up to date; therefore,
if any details for your child have changed it is imperative that you contact
our Data Officer immediately. It is essential that, when conducting trips,
all the information held for your child is current.
All authorised off-site educational activities are
automatically covered by the school insurance.
This cover is provided by the Department for Education’s Risk Protection Arrangements.
A copy of the school’s insurance certificate is available on the school website.
