Permission for the use of photographs and recorded images
Please note that this form needs to be signed by the participating school.
The Waltham and District Primary Schools Sports Association (WDPSSA) recognises the need to ensure the welfare and safety of all Young People within the activities in which they participate. As part of this commitment we will not permit photographs, video images or other images of Young People to be taken or used without the consent of the school and the young people parent/carers.
The WDPSSA will follow the guidance issued by Hertfordshire County Council (Children, Schools and Families) on the use of images in Hertfordshire schools, which is available on http://www.thegrid.org.uk. The WDPSSA will take steps to ensure that these images are used solely for the purpose they are intended, which is the promotion and celebration of the WDPSSA and schools activities. If you become aware that these images are being used inappropriately you should inform the WDPSSA immediately.
If photographs e.g. team or action shots, are submitted to the Press or published on our website, individuals will not be identified. In circumstances where there is a need to identify an individual in the press, parental permission will be sought beforehand.
Please note: The WDPSSA understands that there are circumstances under which a parent/school would not wish their children to be photographed. Whilst we will do all that it can to ensure the safety of children during events, it is the responsibility of the parent/school concerned to ensure that if necessary their child is not videoed or photographed. The WDPSSA is unable to supervise individual children during activities or competitions.
