GUIDANCE FOR PARENTS/CARERS ON TAKING VIDEOS/PHOTOS AT SCHOOL EVENTS
We do allow parents/carers to take video and photographs at school events.
However, we do ask parents/carers to respect privacy and so photography at events is on the understanding that photographs or videos that contain images of children other than their own will be for personal use only and will not be posted on the internet.
Parents have the right to refuse permission for the school to publish their child’s photo or video image on the school website or in local media and should notify the school, in writing, if they do not want their child’s photo published.
The school will work from the premise that parents/carers are happy for their child’s picture to be published.Parents are asked to inform the school if they do not wish their child’s image to be used or shared as outlined above.
