    Introduction,

    Vantage Academy Trust (“us”, “we”, or “our”) use cookies on our website (the service). This policy
    explains what cookies are and which type of cookies we use, how we use them and your choices
    regarding their use.

    Scope
    This privacy notice covers websites owned and operated by the Vantage Academy Trust including:
    www.vantageacademies.co.uk (including the websites of its schools)
    https://teachnorthwest.co.uk/
    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 pieces of text sent by your web browser when you visit a website. A cookie file is
    stored in your web browser and allows the service or a third-party to recognise you and make your next
    visit easier and the service more useful to you.
    Cookies can be ‘session cookies’ which are active from the time you visit to the time you leave a website;
    for one session only. Cookies can also be persistent meaning they are stored on your device
    remembering your usage and preferences for any future visits to the website.

    Why Vantage Academy Trust use cookies?
    Cookies serve many purposes; they can help a website remember your device and preferences, allow
    us to analyse how our website is performing and recommend content we believe may be the most
    relevant for our users.

    What sort of cookies does this website use?
    Vantage Academy Trust use both ‘session’ and ‘persistent’ cookies on our website across the following
    different types of cookies that perform different functions:

    1. Essential cookies
    Essential cookies are often referred to as strictly necessary as they are crucial for a website to run
    correctly. Our website cannot provide our users with the necessary services without the use of essential
    cookies which is why they are exempt from regulations which require consent to place cookies on your
    device(s). Our ‘contact us’ form for instance would not work properly without essential cookies.

    2. Performance Cookies
    These cookies allow us to collect information about how visitors use our website, for instance which
    pages you visit most often, and if any error messages occur. Performance cookies do not record
    information that identify you; all information is aggregated and anonymous. Performance cookies are
    only used to improve how a website works.

    3. Functionality Cookies
    These cookies allow a website to remember certain choices that visitors make when they visit a website
    to provide a more personalised service to users. Examples of functional cookies include selecting a
    preferred language and text size.

    Third Party Cookies
    In addition to our own cookies, we may also use various third-party cookies to report the usage statistics
    of our websites. Vantage Academy Trust and its websites are linked to Google Analytics, a third-party
    service that helps us to monitor performance through statistics.

    What are your choices regarding cookies?
    Where the use of cookies is optional, users can choose to delete or refuse the further use of cookies.
    Please note that if cookies are disabled or you refuse to accept them, the features of our websites may
    not operate properly.

    When visiting one of our websites for the first time, you will be presented with a pop up prompting you
    to set your cookies preferences. These preferences will typically be saved for any future visits
    (persistent cookies) unless you delete or disable cookies in your browser settings. We have provided
    details below on how you can find out more information about cookies and instructions to change your
    preferences. You can also visit the help pages of your browser.
