(1) Permission for visits on foot within the locality and participation in events. Supervised by staff and volunteers, pupils may periodically visit the Church, local shops, and other places of note & interest within the locality. Local visits, for example to allotments, may also, on occasion, provide an opportunity for children to try new foods. Visits that involve transport will always require written consent or consent via ParentMail.
(2) Use of Children’s Images in School Materials. Like all schools, OLQOH uses children's images to assess and record pupil progress & attainment e.g. during practical science lessons, as well as to celebrate events and successes throughout the year e.g. during Sports Day and at special events.
Most images are not published 'externally', but there are occasions when photographs may be shared with wider stakeholder groups, for example in the weekly School Newsletter and on the school website as well as on the occasions where OLQOH featured in the local press. Published images of past or present pupils are never named and Parents and Carers will always be notified if their child's image is to be used by an external organisation such as the local newspaper.
(3) Acceptable Use Policy. Each year, OLQOH Teachers will spend time with Classes reviewing expected behaviours when using IT equipment in school. In addition, the school participates in the annual eSafety Day, working with children to develop and embed safe and sensible habits when accessing the Internet at home.
OLQOH takes every reasonable precaution to maintain online safety including the use of monitoring and filtering software and reserves the right to restrict access to IT equipment and systems in the event of inappropriate use. Parents & Carers will be contacted by staff in the event of concerns being raised in relation to the online behaviour of any pupil and are asked to actively encourage and support the work of OLQOH by reinforcing sensible and appropriate eSafety guidance at home.

Additional information in relation to VA (Voluntary Aided) Schools
Governor Fund Contribution. OLQOH is a Voluntary Aided School (a status that applies to all Church Schools). This means that we are not fully funded by the Government re building upkeep. Consequently, we request that each family makes a contribution of £30 per annum, please, to the Governor Fund, in order to assist us in maintaining a pleasant and safe learning environment for the children.
Parents and Carers can contribute via Standing Order. Parents and Carers can also pay their annual contribution by card, via the ‘shop’ section on ParentMail. Please enter the amount you wish to pay in your cart ‘amount to pay now’ (£30 recommended per family, please). If you need any further help with this, please speak to the School Office.
Governor Fund Contributions can be Gift Aided which means OLQOH can claim back an additional 25p for every £1 donated. If you are a tax payer, please remember to fill this section in on either ParentMail or the Gift Aid form (attached to the bottom of this webpage).
