Dear Parent/Carer,

You may be aware that there are new data protection rules coming in from 25th May 2018. To ensure we are meeting the new requirements, we need to re-seek your consent to continue to use data in this way. We really value being able to use the data to inform of your child’s development and reporting as necessary, so we would appreciate you taking the time to give consent again.

The point of this is to make sure sensitive or private information about yourselves and your children stays safe. Whilst it is similar to the current Data Protection Act in many ways, there are a few differences, so we need to make a few changes at the school in order to ensure we remain compliant.

One of these changes is that we have updated our privacy notice.

In addition to this we sometimes take photographs of pupils. We use these photos in school publications (i.e. prospectus, leaflets, yearbook), on the school’s website/social media channels and on display boards around school.

We would like your consent to take photos of your child, and use them in the ways described above. If you’re not happy for us to do this, that’s no problem, we will accommodate your preferences.

Please complete the form below and submit the information when complete.

If you change your mind at any time, you can let us know by emailing admin@ems.hartlepool.sch.uk, calling the school on 01429 273790, calling in to the school office or use the contact form on the website.

If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
