Online Safety & GDPR

Online Safety

In early October 2018, Mr Faith and Miss Billington (St Stephen’s Computing Coordinators), held a pair of online safety workshops. They plan on continuing to do this on an annual basis, but as some parents / carers who were unable to attend enquired about getting copies of the workshop’s slideshow, along with it’s accompanying handouts, we thought we would create this page on the school website for them.

They can be found via the links below:

Online Safety Workshop – Slideshow

If you require any clarification on any of the points raised in the slideshow / handouts, please don’t hesitate to contact Mr Faith or Miss Billington via email. We hope you find the slideshow and handouts useful!



As you may be aware, stringent new data protection legislation (‘GDPR’) will be introduced on May 25th 2018.

As part of this, you will be required to ‘opt-in’ to most communications you receive from companies or institutions, be they public or private. This is why you’ve no doubt recently received many emails from retailers with the heading ‘Please Stay In Touch’ or something similar! A hard form was sent out in book bags a while back, but if you haven’t done so already, our general consent form is available digitally to download or print.

Provide your consent and sign here:

St Stephen’s General Consent Form 2020

We also have our school Privacy Notice outlining the ways in which we use your child / children’s data. It can be found here:

St Stephen’s Privacy Notice 2020

You can also find our Data Protection Policy here:

St Stephen’s Data Protection Policy 2020

We at St Stephen’s take the security of your child / children’s data very seriously indeed and I hope the above documents provide you with the information that you need. However, if you have any further queries about GDPR and how we follow it, please don’t hesitate to email me (Luke Faith) at

Kind Regards,

Luke Faith
