As I am sure many of you are aware, new data regulations are coming in to force on May 25th 2018 for all establishments. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a recently published EU regulation building on the Data Protection Act. It has a particular emphasis on the strict control of the processing of personal data. Personal data is defined as that which enables a person to be directly or indirectly identified by the use of it. Over the past year we have been reviewing our policies and procedures for the processing of data to ensure that we have the correct processes in place. We also ensure that the data we hold is as current as possible and is updated annually. In September we will be asking everyone to complete annual consent forms and contact details. We have updated our privacy statement and this will soon be available on our website.
Every year we hold Anti Bullying week. This ties in with the National Anti Bullying week in November. We deliver themed assemblies, we have invited an Anti Bullying Ambassador, from The Princess Diana Trust to talk to all of the children, we design anti bullying posters and work together to discuss what bullying is and how to deal with it if it ever happens to you. Every class rewrites their whole class anti bulling charter. These can be seen on the class pages.
We also learn about keeping safe online. We hold a parents workshop to raise awareness of the issues online too. The NSPCC deliver keeping safe workshops every other year and offer a workshop for parents. Our next workshop is in March 2018. We celebrate online safety day in February every year.
Each year the children answer either individual or class questionnaires and this helps us keep informed about the children's views.
We are proud to announce that in April 2017 we were awarded the Derbyshire STOP Anti-Bullying Award.
Moving To Another School.
If you are considering changing school, it is important to inform the Headteacher as we have a duty to inform the Authority of any child that we believe has left our school and has not provided forwarding information on their destination and education provision. If we are unable to establish your child's new school, we would have to refer them as a missing child to the Education Welfare Services. As a result, your child's name may be kept on a missing register and efforts will be made to trace them.
It is also important to know about a new school so that we can send on your child's records. If you are concerned that the details of your destination should not be shared with anyone but the Headteacher, please discuss this with her. She will be able to ensure that access to your new address details is restricted appropriately.
