Consent to use photographs and images online and in school publications
We are proud of the many achievements of our students at Bright Futures 4 All and there are many activities and events for our students to get involved in. You will have seen that we often use photos of students on our website, on social media and in our school prospectus to give people a flavour of school life at Bright Futures 4 All, to keep the school community informed about what our students do and to celebrate achievements. We also sometimes publish photos of students in our school newsletter. In this digital age, many members of our school community use social media to stay connected with what is happening in school and, for those who don’t use social media, the website is an important communication tool which showcases what we do.
Under data protection law, we need the consent of parents / carers to use photographs or video images of students in this way usually until students reach the age of 13. From the age of 13, students have the right to withdraw consent if consent has previously been given (by a parent when the child was under the age of 13), where we are satisfied that they are able to understand what it means to withdraw consent.
There is no obligation on you to give consent and if you choose not to give consent for some or all of the options on the consent form, we will ensure that your child's photo or a video is not used for those purposes if your child can be identified from it. It may be helpful to inform your child if you decide not to give consent for any of the options below. In some cases, we may take group photos of students and we may publish a photograph if we are satisfied that individual students cannot be identified from the image.
Your consent will last for the duration of your child’s time at Bright Futures 4 All. You can withdraw or change your consent at any time by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com. If you withdraw consent for your child’s photo being used in any of the ways described on the form, we will stop using it in this way.
