The Use Of Photos/Videos On The Belmont Website/Social Media
The safety of our pupils is paramount at Belmont. We ensure that any photos or videos that are uploaded to the website/social media are selected carefully so their image cannot be misused.
The following guidelines are strictly adhered to:
Photos/Videos Taken At School Events - A Request To Parents And Carers
We welcome parents and carers to come into school to see the children take part in plays, concerts and sports during the school year. Obviously you wish to take photos or videos of your children to capture these magical moments.
We request that the photos and videos are used for personal use only and are not uploaded onto sites such as Facebook or YouTube.
As explained above, we ask permission from all parents and carers before uploading photos or videos of pupils to our website. We also ensure that children are not identified in any photos/videos that are uploaded. However, some parents have requested that photos/videos of their children are not used.
Some people do not want their image online for personal or religious reasons. Some children, families and staff may have a complex family background which means that sharing their image online can have unforeseen consequences.
Unfortunately there could also be times when some children and adults may be at risk and MUST NOT have their image put online and not all members of the school community will know who they are.
We hope you will support our request in order to keep all members of the school community safe.
