DS will be starting school in Sept and the school have sent us a form asking for consent to use his image or name on : school display materials / school website / school's and LEA's materials and newsletters / LEA and local council website / medial coverage of the school and education dept in local or national media.
I don't know why but I am uneasy about having his full name on anything outside the school - am I just being paranoid? Does anybody else feel like that? or am I mad ...
I'm ok about it, but my friend fosters children, and they do not give permission due to family circumstances and potential child protection issues.
For photos, they either blur the childs face, hide them behind someone or if not possible then they sit out of the photos....tbh names are hardly ever included in any printed stuff, it's usually a generic "pupils at Manky's School".
Have a woprd with the school and look at anything published by them already and see how you feel.
