Increasingly, computers and related technology are making it easier to use pictures and images in printed materials or on websites. As more and more people now have home computers we need to take steps to prevent photographs and images being wrongly used.
We take the issue of child safety very seriously. The forms below can be used to obtain consent to enable the school, official County Council photographers or authorised press photographers to take and use photographs and/or make video recordings of children individually or in a group. There may be occasions when it is intended to use a photograph or image that identifies a child by name e.g. as part of a newspaper article, or is to be used in a particular context. In these instances parents can indicate whether they are happy for the headteacher to use his/her discretion in the matter or whether the school should seek specific parental permission.
