Use of Photographs

It is not illegal for photographs of children to be taken in school by staff and using school
equipment but it is sensible to comply with all current recommendations and/or good practice recognition since photographs and video images may be classed as personal data under the terms of the Data Protection Act 1988. Therefore such images may only be used for school publicity or other purposes in cases in which the consent of the parent or legal guardian has not been withheld or withdrawn.

At Larkrise School, we will not display personal images on websites, in publications or in a public place where such consent has been withheld or withdrawn and will, wherever possible, avoid naming individual children.

If you have any queries regarding use of photographs please contact Lynne Davies or Helen Crapnell.
