Draft letter to parents
In order to comply with new GDPR directives concerning your personal data, we're in the process of migrating all our correspondence to an app called 'Classlist'. It might seem like a bit of a chore, but we've found Classlist to be a very nifty tool that should streamline the way in which we communicate as a community.
Classlist is a free app that allows parents to input their own data and share as much or little of that information as they wish with other parents. All newsletters and other communications from the PTFA can and will be distributed via the app.
Classlist also allows parents to communicate with each other privately and within their classes and year groups. What's more, parents can manage their own settings to control who can see their personal data such as their home address and telephone numbers (i.e. the sort of personal data currently contained in the rather clunky class spreadsheets). Birthday parties can be organised easily and privately on Classlist too.
So please download the Classlist App (on your phone, desktop or ipad) and register as a parent of 'XXX School' to continue to share personal data and communicate with other parents in your class and to receive PTFA communications via the app.
