We are often asked whether parents can take photographs or make film recordings of plays, class worship and other school events.
Normally, at the start of an event guests will be advised if and when they may take photographs. This is often at the end of the performance so that the children and other guests are not distracted.
Please always ask the Headteacher if you wish to film an event as the seating arrangements may make it difficult without obstructing aisles, access for the performers and others' view of the performance. Recording may also be prohibited due to performance rights which the school has to purchase from the author company.
To comply with the requirements of the Data Protection Act, parents attending events involving school children must only take photographs of their own children for their own personal use. These photographs may be shared only with family and friends, they must never be offered for commercial sale and should be shared via social networking sites only if they contain an image of solely your child and not others, unless you have express permission from the parents/carers of the other children who appear in your photograph.
