Parent Council Fundraising Walk – Greenock Cut

Hi everyone

I have attached a picture of our fundraising walk today. As you know due to health and safety concerns we changed location to The Greenock Cut. It was a lovely morning and everyone, including the two doggies enjoyed it. Looks like we got lucky with the weather because as I type this now it is pouring down!

Please find the link below to our justgiving page, any donations would be greatly appreciated to help towards funds for the school.

Thanks again to those who came along and you never know we might make Ben Lomond some day!

Regards

Parent Council

GDPR – Renfrewshire Council Update

Renfrewshire Council takes the privacy of your personal data very seriously. We have set out below what information we collect, how we collect it, what we do with it, who we share it with and why. You can contact us on 0300 300 0300. The Data Protection Officer, Allison Black can be contacted on dataprotection@renfrewshire.gov.uk.

We need to handle personal information about you so that we can provide better services for you. This is how we look after your information.

When we ask you for personal information, we will:

  • make sure you know why we need it
  • ask only for what we need
  • protect your personal information and make sure nobody has access to it who shouldn’t
  • take proportionate precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information
  • let you know if we share it with any other organisations to give you better public services
  • make sure we don’t keep it longer than necessary, and
  • not make your personal information available for commercial use without your permission.

In return, we ask you to:

  • give us accurate information, and
  • tell us as soon as possible if there are any changes, such as a new address.

This helps us to keep your information reliable and up to date.

Your rights

You have the following rights:-

  • The right to be informed about how your information will be used.
  • The right of access to your personal information.
  • The right to rectification, which is the right to require the Council to correct any mistakes.
  • The right to request the erasure of any personal information held by the Council where the Council no longer has legal reason to hold the information.
  • The right to request that your information is only processed in certain ways.
  • The right to data portability.
  • The right to object to the Council processing your personal information.

These are not absolute rights are there may be circumstances where the Council is legally obliged to process your information in a particular way. Some examples are listed below.

Your details will be accessed by the Council staff who need this to provide you with a service and if the service is provided by an external agency, that agency. We are also legally obliged to protect public funds, so details will be checked internally for fraud prevention and verification purposes and may be shared with other public bodies for the same purpose.

Sharing your information

The Council is legally obliged to share certain data with other public bodies such as Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) and will do so where the law requires this; the Council will also generally comply with requests for specific information from other regulatory and law enforcement bodies where this is necessary and proportionate. Information is also analysed internally in-order to provide management information and improve service delivery.

Consent

We will not ask for consent in cases where we need to process your information to carry out our public functions. If we have asked for your consent to process your information, you have the right to withdraw this, in whole or in part, at any time. We will explain any consequences of this to you, including any impact on the service we are delivering.

Transferring our information outside the UK or European Economic Area

The Council will not transfer personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA)unless this cannot be avoided. The Council will only transfer data outside the UK and the EEA when it is satisfied that the party which will handle the data and the country it is processing it in will provide adequate safeguards for personal privacy. On the occasions when it does transfer your information outside the UK or the European Economic Area, the Council will inform you.

Profiling and automatic decision making

The Council do not use profiling or automated decision-making processes. Some processes are semi-automated (such as anti-fraud data matching) but a human decision maker will always be involved before any decision is reached in relation to you.

How long do we keep your information?

The Council will only keep your information for as long as necessary. Full details of how long the
Council usually retains your information can be found in the Council’s Retention and Disposal Schedule which is published on the Council’s website here. However, there may be circumstances where we may need to keep your information for longer. Once the Council no longer needs to keep your information, it will be securely destroyed.

Parent Council – Request for Help

Request for Help – Interview Practice.

The PMHS Head Boy and Head Girl suggested that senior pupils be given experience of 1:1 interviews to help them with their future careers. The school have agreed to incorporate interview practice sessions for senior pupils in the new Careers Event being held on 4th June. The Parent Council would like to support this and so are asking for volunteers with interviewing experience to help at the event. We need a large number of volunteers to offer this to as many pupils as possible. If you or any of your colleagues have experience carrying out interviews and are available 1pm – 4pm on Mon 4th June then please contact the Parent Council on parentcouncil@parkmains.com

It should be a fun and very worthwhile afternoon so please contact the parent council and we will provide additional information.

Parent Council Fundraising Walk

This is a reminder that we have a Park Mains High School Parent Council hill walk to Ben Lomond on Sat 9th June.

We’ve only had a few people confirm attendance so far so could you let me know if you are able to attend.

If you can’t make it then see if you can persuade other parents to attend and feel free to pass on this e mail.

It should hopefully be a good spring day out after the SQA exams.

If you are interested please reply to this e mail and we can send you further information.

Thanks

Parent Council Fundraising Event

PMHS Parent Council is planning a sponsored hill walk on Sat. 9th June.

Venue: Ben Lomond.

The aim is to have a sociable day out with other parents, perhaps some teachers and even some pupils!

If we can raise some money for additional school equipment or events then that’s great.

We will organise this on an individual basis (to avoid the school or the PC having any liability). The PC will suggest a meeting place, a suggested start time, provide individual sponsor forms, a packing list and everyone can make their own way there and walk at their own pace. Participants would be responsible for their own lunch, kit, kids, safety etc. If you can raise some funds through sponsorship or through a donation then that’s great (but not essential).

Hopefully this will be a pleasant day out and a chance to chat to other parents.

Hopefully the date is suitable for you – being after the SQA exams and before the Bishopton and Erskine Gala days (and before the midge season)

If you are interested in taking part please contact us at parentcouncil@parkmains.com

This is intended to be a fun event so we’ll carry out a weather check before confirming final details.

 

Best wishes. Russell

PC Chair.
