PHOTOGRAPHS AND ARTICLES ABOUT PUPILS IN THE MEDIA AND ON OUR SCHOOL WEB-SITE
After consultation with parents and carers, the school has agreed that only pupils’ forenames and the year group they are in will be used by newspapers when they photograph events and write articles about the life and work of the school. Similarly on our school web-site, the surnames of children on photographs will not be used. Any parent or carer who does not want his/her child to be featured in any photographs or articles about the school, or on our web-site, will need to indicate this on the information sheet they complete at the beginning of reception. In order for us to keep our records up to date, permission letters will be sent out periodically about this issue. The policy with regard to videoing school events or concerts is that we ask any parents who object to videoing or photographing by parents to inform school so that we can ensure that their child does not take part in the event. We, therefore, allow videoing and photographing at school events but request that parents keep their cameras positioned on their own child as much as possible.
