Photography during school events
A few parents have asked for clarification regarding photographing/videoing school events. Please see below the guidelines.
The restrictions we have put in place are necessary for reasons of safeguarding/ child protection and out of respect for the rights and privacy of parents who have withheld or withdrawn consent for their child being photographed and/or who might have concerns about the use of such images.
It is also the responsibility of the school to ensure that we are compliant with safeguarding requirements at all times and do not put at risk the safety of any vulnerable children. In addition, such events can involve all children throughout school, such that complying with the wishes of those parents who do not wish their child to be photographed is a complex and sensitive matter.
In order to minimise disturbance, wherever possible, the school will arrange for photographs of each child in costume to be made available to parents shortly after the event.
Please note that the use of personal cameras, mobile phone cameras or other recording equipment is prohibited on school premises at all other times.
