Welcome to the Summer term

15 Apr 2018

Good Afternoon!

We hope you had a good Easter break. Welcome to the first communication of the Summer term.

Wonde School Portal

As you’ll be aware, we use Wonde to securely access the data we require from your MIS in order to keep your eSchools platform up-to-date.

To assist all of our school customers, we have worked alongside Wonde to help provide further clarity on the exact data we collect and to give you more control over that process.

With the GDPR less than two months away, Wonde will be releasing a new Schools Portal which will allow you to login, access information you need to assist you with GDPR compliance, and to manage exactly what data is accessed by third parties.

Wonde will be in contact next week to detail how you’ll access the new portal.

DfE Website Requirements

A reminder that, for the 2017 to 2018 academic year, there is a new condition requiring schools to publish how many pupils within their year 6 cohort are meeting the national curriculum requirement to swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

As part of their monitoring process, the DfE will sample a number of schools in each local authority, with the schools chosen based on a mix of random selection and prior non-compliance with the online reporting requirements.

For more information, please see a copy of the email we sent out during the Easter break
