Taking photographs and videos of children and young people
Nettlesworth Primary School recognises its responsibility to ensure the welfare and safety of children and young people and to comply with the General Data Protection Regulations from 25THMay 2018.
We use photographs and videos for a number of reasons including celebrating and recording children successes. These images or videos may be used on display boards, screens and on our website and our social media site. Your child’s identity will not be disclosed without your consent and only if the photograph is used to celebrate individual success.
Photographs and videos will only be recorded on school owned equipment and will not be kept for longer than is to be considered necessary, and in any event, not exceeding a maximum of three years after your child has left the school.
We also believe that it is important for families to celebrate children’s successes and for that reason at some events we may allow parents/carers to take photographs and videos. We will remind parents/carers prior to the event that any photographs or videos taken should not be uploaded to social media.
If you are concerned about the privacy of your child we would like to encourage you to make an appointment and discuss your concern with the Head Teacher, Mrs D Lee so we can take appropriate measures to protect them.
On some occasions if we do not have permission to use the image of your child it may result in your child not being able to take full part in some school events.
It is the parent’s responsibility to inform the school if circumstances change and you do not want your child to be included.
Mrs D Lee
