Online Information From WM Police
Spam and Fraud
There has been an increase in spam and fraudulent emails in the UK, many of which are using the pandemic to scam individuals and businesses. The National Cyber Security Centre has lots of advice available in one website to help protect businesses and families to keep themselves secure online. www.ncsc.gov.uk
Our young people are spending a lot more time online during the lockdown, a parent’s guide attached that talks about keeping them safe from bad influences online, and there is more information available at https://www.ltai.info/staying-online/
We are staying together by meeting online instead, but there have been a few occasions where unwanted guests joined in and caused disruption on sites like Zoom. Step-by-step security guidance is attached to keep your meetings safe from uninvited guests.
We hope you won’t need this, but if you do encounter any Hate Crime online or in person then please report it to West Midlands Police as soon as possible. https://www.west-midlands.police.uk/your-options/hate-crime
You will find a range of resources for health and well-being here.

Data Protection Law
You may be aware that from 25 May 2018, the rules around Data Protection are changing. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will change how personal data can be used and how it must be kept safe. The GDPR also strengthens your rights over your own data.
Saint Anne’s Catholic Primary School has always been committed to ensuring that personal and sensitive information about yourselves and your children stays safe, and whilst the GDPR is similar to the current Data Protection Act in many ways, there are a few differences, so we need to make a few changes in order to ensure we remain compliant. One of these changes is that we have updated our privacy notice. You can view our Privacy Notices and Policies.
We seek consent from you for the use of photographs/videos of your children, and as part of our work to comply with the GDPR we would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. To do so, please contact the school office and ask for a Pupil Consent Form and return the completed form to the school office. If you have any questions about how the GDPR affects you, please contact us by emailing: email@example.com.
