Christopher Pickering Primary School operates the following policy on its website regarding the use of photographs, to ensure the privacy and safety of pupils at the school.
- Where pupils are named, only their first names are given.
- Where a pupil is named, no photographs of that pupil displayed.
- Where a photograph is used which shows a pupil, no name is displayed.
By observing these points, the school ensures that visitors to the website cannot link images of the pupils to names of pupils. When choosing photographs for the website, the school is mindful of the ways pupils appear in them and will not include images which are in any way inappropriate, such as close up shots of individual pupils.
The school follows a policy of seeking parents’ permission before using images which show pupils on the website.
No other private information about pupils is ever published on the website – such as surnames or contact details.
