Here are some links to websites that will give you information about how to stay safe on the internet.
If you have any questions or if anything you find causes concern, please come in and we will be more than happy to talk to you.
At the beginning of each year we ask parents to complete permission forms for all sorts of things like school trips, allergies, etc. and one of those forms is for photo permission.
The agreement for photo permission in school means that the school may take photographs or video at sports events, performances and assemblies etc. The school will use these images in classwork, on display boards, on the school's website and other areas related to learning. If parents or guardians take photos or video for their personal use, we ask them to be mindful of what they do with them and should they choose to share them on social networking sites like FaceBook, then please be aware of others who may appear in the photos. Occasionally, there may be legal reasons preventing all photography (e.g. copyright), or the school has made a decision that photography is not possible during that particular event. Please respect this decision if you are asked not to take photographs or video at a production, assembly or Christmas Nativity etc. Should photo permission for a child be denied, and this is personal choice, we will take all necessary steps to avoid photography of the child. Please be aware that they may be asked not to be in certain pictures that we would want to be on the website.
The other permission required is for external photography, which could be by the local paper or Suffolk County Council, etc. If permission is granted, the Willows School have no control over what happens with the photos or where they may be published. Please note that we have to have either permission agreement OR disagreement and cannot seek permission on individual events.
