Website policy statements
Website Child Protection Policy
The School operates the following policy on its website regarding the use of photographs and content, to ensure the privacy and safety of pupils at the school:
1. Where pupils are named, only their first names are given unless permission is given by the parent for the family name to be included such as when a pupil receives an award or special achievement.
2. Where a pupil is so named, no photograph of that pupil is shown;
3. Where a photograph is used which shows a number of pupils, no names are displayed.
4. No private information about pupils is ever published on the website
By observing these points, the school ensures that visitors to the website cannot link images of pupils to names of pupils. When choosing photographs for the website, the school is mindful of the way pupils may appear in them, and will not include images which are in any way inappropriate, such as close-up portrait shots of individual pupils.
Also, please note that if pupils - or parents - send email messages to school, using the Contact Us email form, any personal details, including the email address are removed before being added to our message board. Finally, although it's lovely to receive messages, we hope pupils will not be offended, but any emails to individual staff cannot be replied to.
