Privacy Notice


Dear Parent/Carer,

It is essential that we ensure the information we hold about you and your child is accurate and up to date in order for us to support your child at school.

We regularly send out Data Collection sheets to parents to check that the data we hold is up to date. If you have changed your mobile number, moved address or have any changes which you need to let us know about please contact the School office who will be able to update the data that we hold.

The information that you give us is held on the School’s database to which no unauthorised person has access. This database is compliant with the new General Data Protection Regulation.

To view the School/Trust Privacy notice please go to:

 If you have any questions about this document please contact the School office in the first instance.

In order to comply with the new regulation, the School needs your consent before taking photographs or making video recordings of your child. You have the option to indicate whether or not you consent to your child’s images being taken and used for different purposes. You can withdraw your consent at any time by writing to the School.


Parent Helpers

All parent helpers in school need to complete the document below.

Phonics


Thank you for taking an interest in your child's reading. As you probably know, children are taught to read using a system known as synthetic phonics. At Darite, we teach this using a scheme called Letters and Sounds to see our Guide for parents.

When helping your child with reading, several other websites are worth a look;


Oxford Owl


The Oxford Owl site has a large number of books on it that can be accessed in an electronic format free of charge. Reading e-books is popular with children and can often motivate them to read for longer than when reading paper books!


PTA


The PTA are constantly striving to find ways to raise money to improve school facilities for the children.

Why not help to raise funds for the school by shopping online.

Go to http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk to find out how it works


Thrive


WHAT IS THRIVE?

As a school we use an approach called ‘Thrive’. Thrive supports children with their emotional health, well-being and social skills, all of which are needed for learning to take place. Thrive is based on up to date brain science and research into child development and helps staff in school to adapt their approach to individual children to build self-esteem, well-being and behaviour.

The Thrive approach begins with a whole class, computerised screening, where teachers answer a series of questions about each child in the class. The computer programme then identifies any children who would benefit from a more detailed assessment, which in turn suggests ideas, activities and strategies to support the individual child. You can find out more about Thrive at www.thriveftc.com.

We believe that this approach can be of huge benefit to all our children and so we will be asking all parents and carers for permission to carry out a Thrive Screening on their child. We will of course let you know of any concerns revealed by the screening and you will be fully consulted and involved in any follow-up activities. Sometimes it may be useful to share the results with other agencies, for example our Educational Psychologist or Behaviour Advisor, so we ask your permission for this too.

At Darite, we have intensively trained two ‘lead’ members of staff to support with the delivery of this approach across our school.

We do hope that you will wish your child to benefit from this valuable resource, but please feel free to contact the school if you have any queries.
