Biometric Library System
We currently use a biometric system within the sch
ool to record which books pupil
s loan from
the school library. This system records a measurement taken from a finger, but not a
fingerprint image, and then is stored in a highly s
ecure database and is only used by the
school to confirm the borrowing of books from the library.
In order to comply with the provisions of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 (coming into
force in September 2013), we need written permission from a parent
in order for students to
continue to use the biometric system. If you would like your child to continue using the
biometric system, please complete and return the permission slip to the class teacher or
school office. Where parents prefer that their chil
d will not use the biometric system, we will
offer an alternative method of recording which books pupils will be loaning from the library
and their details will be deleted from the biometric system.
If you would like more information or the chance to disc
uss this further, please feel free to
contact the school office and arrange a convenient time to speak to me.
