Every good photo captures a special moment in time. When they capture magical moments in a child’s life, they are precious pages in a family album. At school, they add to the rich tapestry of school life.
We all have a basic need to share our good experiences with those around us.
Sharing positive experiences reinforces our sense of community, improves our well-being and creates bonds of trust with others.
Valuing privacy and consent
Our right to privacy is fundamental.
As parents, we are the guardians of our children’s right to privacy.
Our schools must share in this huge responsibility, ensuring that this right is not violated within the school setting.
When children are the focal point of an image or video, parents should always have the power of consent.
Allowing ethical and efficient media policies
By ensuring that all photos containing pupils are vetted and authorised by parents, the school can be confident that its marketing content does not infringe the rights or trust of its pupils and parents.
