Dear Parents,

This week, the teachers will hold a Zoom session with their classes. A Zoom session lasts for 40 minutes. This is not to check on work done but rather for mental wellbeing. As you may be aware Zoom has had privacy and security issues. If any problem occurs the teacher-(host) will shut down the session immediately.

We will not be recording the Zoom session and you should not record it either. This is in accordance with GDPR. Furthermore, we would appreciate if you do not take a picture of the screen as children’s faces and other identifying information will be visible. Two staff members will be present in each Zoom session. These measures are for GDPR and Safeguarding reasons. If these safety mechanisms are not implemented, it will not be possible to have any further interaction with the school using Zoom. We endeavour to do everything within our power to keep your children, their information and their privacy safe.

On the morning of each session, you will receive a link by text message inviting you to join a meeting. To join the Zoom session for your child’s class, simply click on the link at the scheduled time.

Mrs Lawlor will be doing a 40min session for 5th and 6th on Tuesdays at 1pm

Mr. Wallace will do his for 2nd 3rd and 4th on Wednesdays at 1.30pm.

Thursday 1.30-1.45pm with Seniors
