ON-SITE EDUCATIONAL VISITS
We are offering your child in Year 3 a place to take part in a Poetry Workshop on Tuesday 26thJune 2018. It will take place in school at 9:00am and finish at 3:00pm. The workshop will include activities based on a range of poetry.
Your child will need to wear school uniform as usual. It is necessary to ask for a voluntary financial contribution if this activity is to take place. If you would like to make a contribution of £4.00 towards the trip it would be very much appreciated.
Please return the reply slip to the class teacher. All consent forms must be returned to school by Tuesday 19thJune 2018.
If you have any concerns please speak to your child’s teacher.
Our next Online Safety parent workshop is just around the corner. This half term our theme is "Home Internet Security".
Here you will learn how to install Sophos Home to protect your laptops and PC's at home. You will learn how to filter websites, view the internet history as well as monitor your computer usage.
All parents and carers are welcome.
Changes to data protection law
You may be aware that from 25th May 2018, the rules around data protection are changing. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will change how personal data can be used and how it must be kept safe. The GDPR also strengthens your rights over your own data.
The Prince Albert Community Trust has always been committed to ensuring that personal and sensitive information about yourselves and your children stays safe, and whilst the GDPR is similar to the current Data Protection Act in many ways, there are a few differences, so we need to make a few changes in order to ensure we remain compliant.
One of these changes is that we have updated our privacy notice. Please find it here. You can also view our privacy notices and policies on our website www.the-pact.co.uk. You can also find more information on the GDPR and your rights in our latest Online Safety Update Newsletter.
We already seek consent from you for the use of photographs or videos of your children, and as part of our work to comply with the GDPR we would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. To do so, please contact the school office and ask for a pupil consent form and return the completed form to the school office.
If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you, or how the PACT and our schools are preparing, you can contact us by emailing email@example.com or please contact the school office.
