Using Digital Images in School Policy

Photographs and video for school and family use are a source of pleasure and pride, which can enhance the self-esteem of children and young people and their families. Parents/carers are not required to comply with the Data Protection Act 1998 when taking photographs for their own private use of their children at an organised event. Parents should not be stopped taking photographs for their own private use because of concerns of contravening the Data Protection Act. However we must always be mindful of the need to safeguard the welfare of children in our school, and issues of child protection, data protection and parental consent will be given careful thought.
