PUBLICITY CONSENT

Publicity Consent - Please read (click here)

During the school year there may be opportunities to publicise some of the activities that your child is involved with. This may involve photographing or filming students for:

  • Use in publicity materials including internal school displays, newsletters, marketing materials
  • Use on the school’s or trust’s website and social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube)
  • In the media (newspapers, TV, radio)

As a school we welcome these opportunities and hope that, as parents, you do too.

Photography or filming will only occur with permission and under the supervision of a member of school staff. Where filming or photography is carried out by the media, students will only be named when there is good reason e.g. celebrations & achievements etc. A child’s home address will never be disclosed.

Please note that web applications mean that information is available worldwide, including countries where there is no data protection legislation.

To comply with the Data Protection Act 2018, we need your permission before taking images of your child. The permission will last for the whole of your child’s education at this school. You can ask to see the images of your child held by the school and you may withdraw your consent at any time. This request should be made in writing to your child’s Student Manager.

Please read our General Data Protection Regulation policy (available on our website or via the school office) and indicate whether you agree to your child’s images being taken. You have the option to indicate whether you consent to your child’s images being taken and used for different school related purposes.

For data protection and safeguarding purposes, we ask that parents who take photographs or recordings of any school productions involving anyone else’s children, do not upload these images and videos to social media and youtube accounts.
Do you consent to your child’s image being published in media which school directly controls, including school displays, newsletters, the prospectus, the school website and social media domains (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram)? *
Do you consent to your child’s image and voice recordings being published in media which school does not directly control, i.e. outside organisations such as local news media (eg, the Cumberland News) and other school websites publicising events that your child participated in, etc. *

DECLARATION: I understand that any images or voice recordings I might take at school events must not be used inappropriately and cannot be shared publicly (including being uploaded to social media) without suitable consent from everyone in them.

Issue of Medication (click to read)

Medication (including painkillers), which your child brings with them, must be clearly labelled with their name and dosage and handed into the group leader. Under normal circumstances, your child would then need to request these as required and self-administer. However, it may be considered safe and practical for your child to hold small supplies of some medication (such as creams and nasal sprays) themselves. If so, this must be discussed and agreed with the group leader in advance. Please note that any emergency medication (such as inhalers, epi-pens, insulin, etc.) must be brought to the attention of the group leader. However, the young person would normally hold and take responsibility for these themselves for immediate use when required.

In all instances we will only allow a child to attend a trip if, where relevant, there are two epi-pens/inhalers. Your child carries one and the group leader will take a second emergency epi-pen/salbutamol inhaler, which we hold in our Student Services Centre. We ask parents to ensure that your child carries their epi-pen/inhaler at all times. Epi-pens held in school should be replaced, as necessary, by parents.

In exceptional circumstances, parents can make special requests for school personnel to administer medication. On such occasions, parents need to make a request in writing, to the group leader, well in advance of the trip departure date. Approval from the group leader and the Headteacher will be required. When reasonably practical to do so, and on the voluntary agreement of the staff concerned, special arrangements will be made.

We use the information we hold on our school’s Management Information System, including medical information and emergency contact details, for your child when they participate in any Educational Trip or Visit. It is of paramount importance that all information held on the school’s Management Information System is up to date; therefore, if any details for your child have changed it is imperative that you contact our Data Officer immediately. It is essential that, when conducting trips, all the information held for your child is current.

Insurance Information (click to read)

All authorised off-site educational activities are automatically covered by the school insurance. This cover is provided by the Department for Education’s Risk Protection Arrangements.

A copy of the school’s insurance certificate is available on the school website.

DECLARATION: I agree to my child receiving medication as instructed and any emergency dental, medical or surgical treatment, including anaesthetic or blood transfusion, as considered necessary by the medical authorities present. I understand the extent and limitations of the insurance cover provided. I confirm that the contact details given above are to be used in the event of an emergency or in the event of my child being returned home for some other legitimate reason and that at least one of the named contacts will be available throughout the duration of each off-site visit.
