To meet the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which came into force in May 2018, all organisations handling personal data, including trust and schools, need to have the right governance measures.
We regularly take photographs of our pupils as part of our public duty. We may use these images in our prospectus and in other printed publications that we produce. Photographs of children are used for their learning experience and to show educational activities and achievements.
Photographs will be displayed in school, in newsletters, on the website and on social media. We may also make video or webcam recordings for educational use.
Occasionally the media will take photographs or film footage of a school profile event. Pupils will often appear in these images.
We are aware that it is essential that photographs are taken and stored appropriately to safeguard the children in our care.
We take our duty of care towards our school community very seriously. It is of our upmost importance. If you have any Safeguarding concerns regarding personal images and information being displayed, please do contact us so that we can respond appropriately.
