Photograph Consent Form
Occasionally, we may take photographs of the children at our school. We use these images as part of our school displays and sometimes in other printed publications. We will also use them on our school website and Facebook page.
If we use photographs of individual pupils, we will not use the name of that child in the accompanying text or photo caption. If we name a pupil in the text, we will not use a photograph of that child to accompany the article. If a child has won an award and the parent would like the name of their child to accompany their picture we will obtain permission from the parent before using the image.
For children in Reception, Tapestry is used to celebrate your child’s progress throughout school. For children in year 1 – year 6 photographs are included in work books. Photographs of individuals, groups or classes of children may appear in these records.
From time to time, our school may be visited by the media who will take photographs or film footage of a high profile event. Children may appear in these images, which will sometimes be published in local or national newspapers, or on approved websites.
To comply with the Data Protection Act 1988, we need your permission before we can photograph or make any recordings of your child. Please answer the questions overleaf and return the completed form to the school.
