Website Safeguarding Policy
Childwall Church of England Primary School operates the following policy on its website regarding the use of photographs, videos and names, to ensure the privacy and safety of pupils at the school:
1. Where pupils are named, only their first names are given.
2. Where a pupil is named, no photograph or video of that pupil is displayed.
3. Where a photograph or video is used which shows a pupil, no name is displayed.
By observing these points, the school ensures that visitors to the website cannot link images of pupils to names of pupils. When choosing photographs and videos for the website, the school is mindful of the way pupils may appear in them, and will not include images which are in any way inappropriate, such as close-up portrait shots of individual pupils.
The school follows a policy of seeking parents' permission (via a consent form which is collected each September) before using images which show pupils on the website. Parents are entitled to change their mind at any time about this consent. Parents may also contact us to request removal of a photograph of their child if they feel it is inappropriate in any way or contravenes our website policy.
www.childwallce.co.uk is hosted by Primarysite.net, a company which specialises in safe, secure websites for schools. The website has restricted access to photographs and videos, with right-clicking and copying of pages and their elements restricted to prevent unauthorised use of photographs and videos.
No other private information about pupils is ever published on the website such as surnames or contact details.
