Can I take photographs of my child at school events?
We recognise that parents, carers and family members may wish to record events such as school plays, sports days etc to celebrate their child’s achievements. However it is important that such records remain private and for family and personal use only. Please be very careful if putting your children’s images on the internet, including on social networking sites. If you wish to put images online, and these images contain children who are not part of your family, you must first obtain the permission of parents or carers of the other children concerned.
For further information about taking photographs in school and how the Data Protection Act does not apply to photographs or films being taken for personal use by family and friends please see https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/schools/photos/
Any objections to this policy should be addressed to the Headteacher.
