taking home confidential information

Dear Parent / Carer

As you know we do not usually issue texts unless we need to convey urgent information or if we need to monitor responses.  We would like to advise you in advance that we will be issuing a text tomorrow because new Data Protection law means that periodically we need to check your wishes for your child taking home confidential information.  You have already completed paperwork to consent to your child bringing home confidential information but if we do not receive your response to tomorrow’s text it will mean that next session we are unable to send home items such as end of year reports or the annual data information which we issue in August.

Please do NOT respond to this email but we would be grateful if you could reply to the text tomorrow – a copy of which is shown below.

“New Data Protection law means we need to check your wishes for your child taking home confidential information.  If you are happy to continue reply 1, if you are not happy reply 2.  Please only use numerical 1 or 2 in your reply, no other characters.  Thank you”

If you have any queries please telephone the school office rather than replying to this email.
