Particular information

As part of the curriculum the children access the internet under our supervision and with the protection of East Sussex County Council Firewall. Children promise not to try and access unacceptable sites and to inform staff immediately of any problems. Parents should inform the school if they do not want their children using the internet.

On occasion we take photos of the children for use in school and for promotional purposes such as use on the school website, prospectus and in the local press. The children are never identified by name on any publicity material. Parents should inform the school if they do not want their child’s photo taken and should explain this to their child. These photographs may be used beyond your child’s time at the school.

We have read the Home-School agreement and are happy to abide by the expectations of us.
