As a safeguarding measure, all students are photographed on entry into the Academy for identification purposes and to create an Identity/Cashless Catering card.
Periodically, it is also necessary to photograph or record students for educational purposes. For example, where students are following some GCSE courses, we may need to record them on video as part of the evidence for the examination. In these circumstances, the images are securely stored, used only for those purposes, and are only shared with others where we are legally allowed to do so.
From time to time, we also take photographs and videos of students to showcase what our students do in school and to celebrate their success and achievements. We use these images in the school’s prospectus and newsletters, on the school’s website and social media platforms, on display boards around school and occasionally in the external press and media e.g. newspapers and television.
We really value using images of our students in these ways and would like your consent to do so. If you’re not happy for us to do this, that’s no problem – we will accommodate your preferences. If you decide not to return the completed consent to us, we will assume that you are not giving permission for your child’s image to be used.
If you change your mind at any time, you can inform us of this change by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to our postal address.
If you have any questions about the consent you are giving, please do not hesitate to contact us or go to the Abbey Multi Academy Trust website to view our Privacy Notices.
