Occasionally, we may take photographs of the children at our school. We may use these images in our school's prospectus or in other printed publications that we produce, as well as on our website or on project display boards at our school. We may also make video or webcam recordings for school-to-school conferences, monitoring or other educational use or promotional use.
From time to time, our school may be visited by the media who will take photographs or film footage of a visiting dignitary or other high profile event. Pupils will often appear in these images, which may appear in local or national newspaper, or on televised news programmes.
These photographic images and videos may be used by both Ark Academy and Ark Schools for wider educational and promotional purposes.
To comply with the Data Protection Act 1998, we need your permission before we can photograph or make any recordings of your child for promotional purposes, We ask all parents and carers to grant us this permission when their child joins Ark Academy.
