Media Consent

At Aureus School we take the issue of child safety very seriously and this includes the use of images of pupils in photos or digital videos.

Our students will learn to take photos and digital videos at school. Our adults will use photos and digital videos to record children's work and celebrate their achievements. We would like to include photos and video clips of students and their work on our school website. We will never include the full name of children alongside the images to protect their identity. All digital photo and video work is underpinned by our E-Safety Policy.

The images may also be used in other media such as local newspapers as part of the promotional activities of the school. Parental consent will be obtained if children's names are to be printed.

If you do not consent to photographs and digital images of your child appearing on the Aureus School website, social media accounts nor printed publications or promotional activities such as fliers or our prospectus, please put this in writing for the attention of the Headteacher.

In addition, during your child's time at this school there may be opportunities for them to take part in community events including sports and performing arts. It is recognised that you may wish to take photographs of your child during such an event. However, the school needs to be as certain as possible that all photography and video recording is for personal use and that no parent objects to this practice.

By following some simple guidelines, we believe that we can proceed safely and with due regard to the law:

  • Remember that parents and carers attend school events at the invitation of the Headteacher and Governors
  • The Headteacher and Governors have the responsibility to decide if photography and videoing of school performances is permitted
  • The Headteacher and Governors have the responsibility to decide the conditions that will apply in order that the children are kept safe, that the performance is not disrupted and the children and staff are not distracted
  • Parents and carers can use photographs and videos taken at a school event for personal use only
  • Parents and carers must not photograph or video children getting ready for performances or events
  • If you are accompanied or represented by people that school staff do not recognise they will need to verify who they are if they are using a camera or video recorder
  • Recording or photographing for anything other than personal use would require the consent of all parents whose children may be included in the images

Providing the above guidelines are adhered to and unless parents specifically object, the use of cameras and video recorders will be allowed at events.

Should you object to the use of cameras and video recorders you are advised to make this known in writing to the school.
