Use of Images (School)
When you child starts at St. John’s School, and for the duration of their education here, parents/carers will be asked to complete a permission form to allow images of your child to be published by the school’s website, newsletters or in press releases. If you would like to change your parental preference at any time, then please contact the school office.
Use of Cameras and Digital Images (Parents/Carers) – ‘THINK BEFORE WE POST’
Only at special school events e.g. concert will there be an opportunity at the end for parents/carers to take photographs for personal use only. At no time throughout the event are photographs or videos allowed to be taken. Please could we remind you that these images must not be distributed or put online unless they are only of your own children. This is to protect and safeguard all members of the community.
