Website Policy & Practice

Child Protection Requirements

The Academy operates the following practice on its website regarding the use of photographs, to ensure the privacy and safety of students at the Academy:

1. Parents and Carers can decline to allow use of photographs containing their child(ren).

2. Where Parents and Carers have given permission the following applies :

  • Where students are named, only their first names are given; 
  • Where a student is named, no photograph of that student is displayed; 
  • Where a photograph is used which shows a student, no name is displayed. 

By observing these points, the Academy ensures that visitors to the website cannot link images of students to names of students. When choosing photographs for the website, the Academy is mindful of the way students may appear in them, and will not include images which are in any way inappropriate, such as close-up portrait shots of individual students.

No other private information about students is ever published on the website such as surnames or contact details.
