Cotswold PTA is committed to protecting our students’ privacy. Our policy is to not identify individual people in the photographs we post. Photos posted by Cotswold PTA on the PTA website (cotswoldpta.org) or PTA social networking pages are either non-identifying (no clear faces of children or name tags), or are posted with the express written permission of parents. (Image release forms can be found here.)
An individual student’s achievement or an image of a student’s work may be shared with identification by name only. E.g. A contest winner can be named in a post, but is not to be accompanied by a photograph.
Group photos may be published but children may not be expressly identified. E.g. A picture may be posted of a group of students who have won an award with names included in alphabetical order.
The PTA encourages all parents to be mindful of student privacy when posting photos of school events and activities to personal social networking pages.
