Data protection law changed on the 25th May 2018 to become GDPR.
The steps we took in order to be compliant with GDPR are as follows:
In addition we continue to have a DPO service, Satswana, and audits completed on our data protection procedures.
This notice explains what personal data (information) we hold about you (parents and pupils), how we collect, how we use and may share information about you. We are required to give you this information under data protection law.
This form is sent out to all parents and carers on joining Offham Primary School. At Offham Primary School, we take photographs and film pupils as part of our core activity of education. During your child’s time at Offham Primary School this occurs as part of normal teaching, learning, assessment and safeguarding procedures and as such we do not need your permission for these activities.
However, we do seek your permission to take photographs of your child and use them in the ways described below for the purpose of supporting learning, advertising the school and to celebrate pupil success. Please consider carefully the ramification of not granting permission before you decide.
