  • With regard to parents/guardians taking Photographs of their children at school events The Board of Management have ratified the following policy:

The Board of Management would prefer that only school staff would take photographs of the children at school events. If parents decide to take photographs of their own child/ren they do so with the understanding that these photographs are for their own personal, leisure, domestic use and that they will not be shared on line or on any public forum.

This is an evolving issue with Child Protection and Data Protection considerations and so The Board of Management reserve the right to make changes/amendments as necessary.
