Photography and Video Consent Policy

POLICY ON THE USE OF DIGITAL STILLS AND VIDEOS OF STUDENTS

Ark Walworth Academy takes seriously its responsibility to protect and promote the safety and welfare of our students. We recognise this responsibility extends to how we manage the use of still and video images of students and have put in place appropriate safeguards.

At the stage of admissions, all parents are informed that their child's image may be used in marketing, promotional and educational material produced by Ark Walworth Academy and the wider Ark Schools network. Parents are asked to sign a release form (see below for details) and have the right to opt-out. Where parents have opted out, we take steps to ensure their child's image is not identifiable in any of our materials.

Sample Release statement

All parents are asked to sign up to the following statement:

From time to time, we take pictures of pupils for administrative purposes, as part of our publicity or as part of their studies. We may use these pictures, including film, for administration, in our prospectus, in press releases and advertisements, on our website or in our academy newsletter.We take great care that images are used only for authorised purposes.

Please sign to show that you consent to your child's photography being used for publicity for the academy as detailed above.
