Mrs Hearle's Update
Please see Health Information for the latest information about our safety measures in school, and our revised Risk Assessment, following the emergence of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 in the UK. From Tuesday, staff, students, and visitors to the school, will be required to wear face coverings in communal areas.
Photographs are taken as part of routine school life, and they that may include your child. For example, we often invite press photographers to record events, take team photos and pictures of award winners or special presentations. We also take photographic records of trips and visits. In addition, our school publicity material may well include students to illustrate school life.
Photographs taken by the press remain their property. Photographs taken by our own staff remain under the school’s ownership.
In all these matters we will operate the following code:
- Images taken by the school may be given to the press to illustrate an event, but will not be provided at their request.
- Images taken by the press may include student names for publication in newspapers.
- Publicity material used by the school will NOT name individual students.
- Web-based images will NOT include full student names.
If you explicitly do not wish your child to be included in photographs, please make sure that your child is aware, and you inform us in writing. We will then do our best to ensure they are not photographed.
