IMPORTANT CHANGES TO DATA PROTECTION LAW 

May 2018

Dear parent/carer,

Changes to data protection law
You may be aware that from 25th 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.
Somerville 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 on this website.

We already 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, or how the and our schools are preparing, you can contact us by emailing dpo@somerville.bham.sch.uk or please contact the school office.
Yours faithfully,
 
Mr I. Khan

Headteacher's Welcome

Somerville Primary School is a community school, which proudly serves the local community. We have 790 pupils from Nursery to Year 6. The vast majority of our pupils are Muslim  and come from many different cultural and ethnic backgrounds, which help to make Somerville School a vibrant and exciting place to learn. We provide a safe and secure environment for all, with up to date technological equipment to ensure that our children and staff are ICT literate.


At Somerville we feel that it is important to develop the whole child and therefore provide children with a range of learning experiences from educational visits, residentials, visitors in school as well as exciting lessons and inspirational workshops. We feel that the important link between home and school should be strengthened and therefore invite parents into school at every opportunity from transition workshops to attendance parties.

 

We provide a broad and balanced curriculum, which is language enriched to ensure that our children reach their full potential. If you would like any further information please do not hesitate to contact myself or any other member of staff.
