A message from the headteacher - Mr. P. Whaling|
Thank you very much for visiting our website. Here you will find lots of information about our school. Please use the tabs across the top which will open up menus down the side of the page. If you cannot find what you are looking for please do not hesitate to contact the school office where they will be glad to help.
We are developing:
"The Casterton Way" which is "Believing, Achieving and Being Happy".
We want every child to be happy at school and in the community. We know that all children can achieve their best when they are happy. That includes helping them to believe in themselves and understand that they can aim high!
If you would like to know more about us please arrange a time to come and visit us. We do not hold open days because we would like you to see a normal school day and soak up the lovely atmosphere that our visitors always comment upon.
I look forward to welcoming you!
Mr. P. Whaling - Headteacher
The law is changing and the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) comes into effect on 25th May 2018. It will bring higher standards for handling data and greater expectations for improved transparency, enhanced data security and increased accountability for processing personal data. Schools have a legal duty to comply with the GDPR.
Please take the opportunity to watch the short video clip below.
The new GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is replacing the current Data Protection Act (DPA) and is set to strengthen and unify all data held within an organisation. For schools, GDPR brings a new responsibility to inform parents and stakeholders about how they are using pupils’ data and who it is being used by.
What does GDPR mean for schools?
A great deal of the processing of personal data undertaken by schools will fall under a specific legal basis, ‘in the public interest’. As it is in the public interest to operate schools successfully, it will mean that specific consent will not be needed in the majority of cases in schools.
GDPR will ensure data is protected and will give individuals more control over their data, however this means schools will have greater accountability for the data:
The documents below contain all of the relevant GDPR information for parents/carers.
