Cookie Policy

A "cookie" is a piece of information that is stored on your computer or mobile device to recognise your browser and which records how you have used a website.  This means that when you go back to that site, it can give you tailored options based on the information it has stored about your last visit. You can normally alter the settings of your browser to prevent it from accepting cookies.  We use cookies to improve the way our site works and to monitor how people use our site.  This helps us to understand how people use our site so we can develop and improve the design, layout and function of the site.

Which cookies do we use?

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These are cookies that are required for the operation of our site. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our site such as when you log into your account.  These cookies are essential for our site.

Google Analytics

We use analytical cookies to allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our site when they are using it.  This helps us to improve the way our site works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

In particular, Google Analytics use cookies to remember which web pages you visit and what you have done on previous pages or previous visits to our site. No personal information is collected by Google Analytics and all information collected is stored safely and securely to prevent unlawful third party access.

We use Google Analytics to measure how you are interacting with the site to ensure that we help you get the best out of our site.

Further information on Google Analytics can be found on https://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.

Functionality Cookies

Web pages don't have any 'memory' as such and functionality cookies allow us to store information about your activities on our site. This information is automatically removed from our web server once your browser is closed, therefore, each time you visit our site you will be treated as a 'new' visitor.

We want to keep track of your movements across our site and link your actions to ensure that the same information is not asked from you every time you move from one page to the next.

We use a functionality cookie so that we can track the people that log in to the various areas of our site; whether you are logging into the teachers’ area or logging into your account.  The only information stored on the user's computer is a session ID which composes of alphanumeric characters.  This allows our site to identify you when logging into your account and until you log out or your browser is closed. Therefore, you don't need to keep re-entering the same information.

Cookie Preferences

We use cookies to control the appearance of the cookies information panel, and to remember your choice about cookies on our site.

Third Party Cookies

Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies. You block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our site.
