Track and Trace
Please read the Track and Trace Privacy Notice. This is in place to support Government Polcy and to keep our school safe.
From June 1st the school is open to vulnerable children and those of critical workers. The school will be open to year 6 children from Monday June 8th and possibly to other year groups in the following weeks.Eden Park will not reopen on 1st June to Year 6 children as other Trust schools are, as there is extensive redecoration work taking place during that week and it is necessary to keep pupil numbers low.
Support for anyone at risk of domestic abuse
We continue to hope that you and your families are well and coping with the current situation as best you can. It is certainly fair to say that little could have prepared us for what has happened over the last month or two and we are very conscious of the wide- ranging challenges that the current lock down creates for us all.
I am sure you will all be aware through the media about the increased concerns regarding the additional risks that being at home creates for children and adults who are victims of Domestic abuse. I’m quite sure that you will have seen the broadcasts on television aimed at those who are victims of domestic abuse. Please be aware that if you are currently suffering in this way support and help for you is available. The current lock down rules does not apply in the same way and there are options available to you. We have been asked to open the school up as a place of safety for victims to make a phone call for help. If you need to do this please come to school and ask for Judy Walters or Georgia Newman. Let them know that you ‘need a place of safety to make a phone call’ and they will take you to a private phone where you can contact the appropriate help.
Key Worker Information
In order to comply with the Government’s guidance with regard to shutting schools and providing places for key worker children, it is necessary for us to collect and manage data about these children and their parents/carers in a different way.
Our standard GDPR policy applies, and information found on our privacy notices relating to staff, parents and of course pupils will apply in all cases.
We will use the information that relates to key workers in order to ensure that those children who are entitled to a place at school whilst schools are officially closed are correctly processed, managed and safeguarded.
The Data Controller continues to take its obligations to data processing seriously and will ensure that appropriate safeguards and measures are in place.
Handling complaints during the coronavirus (COVID-19 outbreak)
The DfE does not expect schools to handle new or existing complaints while they are closed. Schools should, however, still engage with parents and pupils where they can. Complaints can be considered once the government confirms schools can safely reopen.
