Cameras, Video and Social Media Use by Parents
Generally photographs and videos for school and family use are a source of innocent pleasure and pride, which can make children, young people and their families feel good about themselves.
We request that parents and carers do not film or photograph our pupils during a performance or an assembly as we require the consent of all the other parents whose children may be included in the images.
We ask that you respect this for the safety of all our pupils.
Keeping our children safe online is of the greatest importance. The following sites provide useful information for parents:
