At Ward Green Primary Schools the use of media i.e. photographs, videos is widely encouraged to stimulate our pupils learning and achieve their full potential, recognising their hard work, commitment and effort.
On admission to school all parents are asked to provide media consent to allow the school to take and publish pictures of their children through their media tools for example internal displays, website, twitter, facebook.
We recognise that parents like to have memories of their children’s school life and events (such as Nativities, school shows etc ) and we do not discourage parents from having momentos of these events. At events such as nativities and concerts, parents will be given the opportunity to purchase a photograph of their own child in their costumes before or after the event.
We do ask that parents are responsible and do not video or photograph other peoples children on school premises and/or upload these onto Facebook or other social networking sites without parental permission.
