A first language other than English should be recorded where a child was exposed to the language during early development and continues to be exposed to this language in the home or in the community.

If a child was exposed to more than one language (which may include English) during early development the language other than English should be recorded, irrespective of the child’s proficiency in English.

In the case of an older pupil who is no longer exposed to the first language in the home, and who now uses only another language, the pupil or parent can determine which language should be recorded.



Our ethnic background describes how we think of ourselves. This may be based on many things including, for example, our skin colour, language, culture, ancestry or family history. Ethnic background is not the same as nationality or country of birth.

The DfE recommends that those with parental responsibility decide the ethnic background for primary pupils. The Information Commissioner (formerly the Data Protection Register) recommends that young people aged over 11 years old have the opportunity to decide their own ethnic identity. Parents, or those with parental responsibility, are asked to support or advise those children aged over 11 in making this decision, wherever necessary.

Please study the list below and tick ONE box only to indicate the ethnic background of your child.

Section A -White
Section B-Mixed
Section C — Asian or Asian British
Section D- Black or Black British
Section E-Chinese
Section F-Any Other Ethnic Group
I do not wish an Ethnic background to be recorded


Please study the list below and tick ONE box only.*

Any information you provide will be used solely to compile statistics on the school careers and experiences of pupils from different ethnic backgrounds, to help ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to fulfil their potential. These statistics will not allow individual pupils to be identified. From time to time the information will be passed on to the Local Authority and the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) to contribute to local and national statistics. The information will also be passed on to future schools.

Increasingly, schools are using photographic and video images of children to enhance learning and life within the school. This is important in taking a creative approach to teaching and learning and in making lessons and activities as enjoyable as possible for children.

Members of staff may use photographs/videos in presentations, in subsequent lessons or to celebrate successes through their publication in Newsletters, school events, curriculum work, display purposes, productions, trips, local newspapers and sporting events.

I will not deliberately look for, save or send anything that could be unpleasant or nasty. If I accidentally find anything like this I will turn off my monitor and tell my teacher immediately.

I will not send to children or adults anything that could be considered unpleasant or nasty.

I will be responsible for my behaviour when using ICT because I know that these rules are to keep me safe.

I know that my use of ICT can be checked and that my parent/carer contacted if a member of school staff is concerned about my Esafety.

I understand that my child may leave the school premises for local, curriculum-related, regular or routine visits, as may be detailed in the school’s prospectus, or for sports fixtures when representing the establishment as part of a team, and hereby give my consent for my child to participate in such events.

I also understand that my child may leave the school premises at other times when I will be informed separately by letter and when further consent may be required from me.

Whilst on the trip my child can receive medical treatment as necessary. I will inform the school as soon as possible of any change in medical circumstances.

I acknowledge the need for the person named above to behave responsibly and agree to the establishment's procedures in this respect.

I am satisfied that all reasonable care will be taken for the safety and well-being of all participants and that appropriate staffing and safety measures will be in place at all times.
