Blog policy

In accordance with our academy policy, our main blog and year group blogs will celebrate children’s work and their achievements, but we are mindful of identifying pupils to protect them online.

We will post images of children either in groups or individually, unless the parent/carer of a particular child has asked us not to do so. We will remove any images at the request of a parent/carer.

Any children’s names on the blog will only be their first name. If there are two children in the year group with the same first name, we will include an initial of the surname.

We will not show children swimming or when not fully clothed, but will include PE/games kit.

Entries on our blogs will be written by staff or pupils but will be uploaded by staff. Any posts on the main blog will be the responsibility of the Head of School, and on the year group blogs will be the responsibility of the Phase Leader.

The blogs are public blogs, but we will not allow comments. We will review this from time to time. If this is changed and we do introduce comments, these will be moderated by the Head of School before being accepted onto the public blog.

All information, resources and images are the copyright of Rushy Meadow Primary Academy, and must not be used for any commercial purposes unless permission has been granted by the Head of School. Where we use images from other websites or link to other sites, we will acknowledge this where possible.
