Security

We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put in place suitable technical and organisational measures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Should we engage a third party to perform a processing activity on our behalf, we will ensure that equivalent security measures are in place and engage them under a contract that meets the requirements under data protection law.

We do not transfer your information outside of the European Union.

Other websites

This website may contain links to enable you to visit other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site you should note that we do not have any control over any other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting other sites and such sites are not governed by this Privacy Policy. You should exercise caution and read the Privacy Policy applicable to the website in question.

The basis of processing

By using this website you are actively engaging with us to provide us with information about enquiries you may have. As a publically funded multi-academy trust, we will use the information you provide us in the performance of a task in the public interest. We will also collect information about you through your use of our website in relation to your usage which is further described in our Cookies Policy. By accessing our website you are consenting to the collection and use of this information by us for the purposes described above. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies.

If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post the changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it and in what circumstances we disclose it.


Cookies Policy

Information about cookies

We are aware of our responsibility to protect your privacy. As part of this responsibility, we let you know what information we collect using cookies when you use our websites, why we collect it and how we use it to improve your experience. You should read this policy in conjunction with the Privacy Policy for our website.

What is a cookie?

Cookies are small files that allow a website to recognise and track users. They consist of simple text files of letters and numbers which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit our website.

Most cookies will not collect information that personally identifies you. They will collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our website, or a user’s general location.

How we use cookies

We use cookies to provide you with a positive experience when you browse through our website. Cookies measure how many people use our website so that we can make it easier to use and ensure there’s enough capacity to make pages load quickly.

Generally, our cookies perform up to three different functions:

  • Strictly Essential Cookies – These are cookies that are required for our website to operate properly. They enhance the site’s functionality and provide you with an optimal experience as a website user. They also allow you to make use of our online systems, for example, our online “Contact” form. Without essential cookies, our site won’t function properly, and if you set your internet browser to reject all cookies, then some elements of the site may not work for you.
  • Third Party Cookies – These are cookies found in other companies’ internet tools which we are using to enhance our site. For example, we have the school’s Twitter feed on our home page, and use Google Maps to show where our school is located. We have no control over the cookies set by Twitter or Google. You can visit https://help.twitter.com/en/rules-and-policies/twitter-cookies to find out more about how Twitter uses cookies, or https://policies.google.com/technologies/cookies to find out more about how Google uses cookies.
  • Analytical/Performance Cookies – These are cookies that allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors to the website and see how visitors move around the website when they are using it. We use Google Analytics cookies to track anonymous usage statistics and do not collect any personal information that can be used to identify you. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

Concerns about cookies

While there are many legitimate uses for cookies to improve convenience and efficiency, some uses of cookies can lead to privacy concerns. These concerns typically emerge when a cookie holding personal information identifying you (e.g. name, email address, postal address etc.) is used across multiple sites to track users and internet usage. Star Academies does not use cookies to hold any personal information or track users across multiple sites.

How you can withdraw your consent to the use of cookies

If you do not consent to the use of cookies on our website, you can exit our site now, or you can choose to disable/block cookies through your browser’s settings and continue to use our site without cookies. You can learn how to disable cookies, or how to remove cookies that have already been set on your computer/mobile device, via the following link: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/

Disabling cookies will, however, impact on the functionality of our website and you may find that some pages fail to display correctly or some of our interactive features do not work for you.

For any queries relating to the use of cookies, please contact our Data Protection Officer:
