IMPORTANT INFORMATION ( please take time to read through the policy and privacy documents by clicking on the links below )
The new General Data Protection Regulation comes into force on the 25th May and replaces the EU Data Protection Directive of 1995 and supersedes the laws of individual Member States that were developed in compliance with the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC, including the UK’s 1998 Data Protection Act.
Its purpose is to protect the “rights and freedoms” of all individuals and to ensure that personal data is not processed without their knowledge and, wherever possible, that it is processed with their consent.
As a school we need to process personal data in order to:
- Carry out a task in the public interest
- Exercise our official authority
We can process personal data without seeking consent if we need to in order for our school to run properly.
School staff have access to your child’s records to enable them to do their jobs. From time to time information may be shared with others involved in your child’s care, if it is necessary. Anyone with access to your child’s records is properly trained in confidentiality issues.
Below you will find our school’s Privacy Notice. A Privacy Notice specifies how the school applies data protection principles to processing data. All personal data which we need for the daily running of the School will be listed on our Privacy Notice for your information. You will also find links to policy documents and a video that will help explain GDPR in more detail.
We take all data privacy and protection very seriously and work to the highest standard to keep your data safe and I hope that, after viewing our website and particularly the detail within the Privacy Notices, you will feel confident that we have all systems in place to be compliant with GDPR.
At Moseley we believe an outstanding education is firmly rooted in valuing each individual and developing the whole person. We believe our students should leave their education at Moseley having been equipped with the skills and knowledge to deal with the increasingly complex demands that life and our society place on all of us as individuals.
A Moseley education provides young people with a stable but forward-looking learning environment. We offer students an opportunity to engage in exciting and innovative teaching and learning that nurtures their creativity, innovation and enterprise. Our approach to ensuring that good progress is made by all our students includes celebrating our multicultural, diverse and inclusive school community. Moseley School is a unique place; a rich community of individuals where every child really does matter.
At the heart of any harmonious and ambitious community lies the personal relationships which encourage our students to become the best they can be; a community where strong and positive relationships are fostered through mutual respect and understanding of others. Central to this is our commitment to the highest standards of behaviour and discipline.
We wish each of our students to grow in confidence and release their academic, spiritual and intellectual promise. Our school will develop as a place where students thrive, a place where staff invest their hearts and minds to ensure the highest quality of learning and teaching and a relentless commitment to making a difference to all our learners, a place where all are inspired and energised by learning.
I deeply value the partnership between school and parents/carers. I ask all parents and carers to support us in our work, to support the school and its activities throughout the year. It is through the participation and commitment of all our students and parents/carers that our school can meet the challenge of becoming an outstanding school in the near future.
How you can help us
Make sure students are correctly prepared and equipped for school. This means that:-
- they get to school on time
- they are correctly dressed
- that they have the correct books for the whole day
- they have at least a pen, pencil and ruler with them
- they have their planner with them
- they keep all belongings in a suitable bag (not a string bag)
- they need to use the local library and develop a habit of reading.
If your child is absent for any reason you should contact the school by phone on the morning of the absence and send a note explaining why they have been away on their return. Holidays should not be taken during term time.
