St Joseph’s
Catholic Primary School

We use cookies and similar technologies on this website to
improve its performance and enhance your user experience. This policy explains
how we do that.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your
computer or mobile device when you visit a site or page. The cookie will help
the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you
visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use
the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect
information in this way.

Cookies serve many functions, for example, they can help us
to remember your username and preferences, analyse how
well our website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we
believe will be most relevant to you.

Certain cookies may record personal information – for
example, if you click “Remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your
username. Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you
personally, and will instead allow us to collect more general information such
as how users arrive at and use our websites.

What sort of cookies does this website use?

Generally, our cookies perform several different functions:

1. Essential cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move
around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the
website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, like shopping
baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided. Because some website features will
not function without cookies of this type, they are designated as ‘strictly
necessary’ and are exempted from the regulations which require your consent to
place cookies on your device.

2. Performance Cookies

These cookies allow us to collect information about how
visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors visit most often, and
if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t record
information that personally identifies a visitor.

All information these cookies record is aggregated and
anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works. By using this
website you agree we may place these types of cookies on your device, unless
you have disabled them.

3. Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow a website to remember choices you make
(such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide
enhanced, personalised features.

These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have
made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise.
They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a
video or commenting on a blog.

The information these cookies record may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on
other websites. By using this website you agree we may place these types of
cookies on your device, unless you have disabled them.

Can a website user block cookies?

As we’ve explained above, cookies help you to get the most
out of this website. However, if you do wish to disable our cookies then please
follow the instructions on

www.aboutcookies.org.

Please remember that if you do choose to disable cookies,
you may find that certain sections of our website do not work properly
