    Angry School Website Legislation

    Afternoon All.

    Just a quick question I'm not too sure on, like the network policy is there a Legislation to what content / images etc are submitted on a school website? which has been produced by the ELA or Gov?

    Trying to get a new school website but it's being put aside and 'could' take time apparently due to some legislation...

    Cheers,

    Dave

    There is a general "Students shouldn't be identifiable" rule.

    So:

    You can have a picture of Fred Bloggs playing football and scoring a winning goal
    But you can't label that as "Fred Bloggs"

    Or you can have "Fred Bloggs won $whatever", but you can't then show a picture of him.

    For everything else, it's common sense regarding copyright, data protection etc.

    Thanks, the picture thing obviously excludes staff right? so I can have staff pictures next to their names? but not for students...

    You would have to to get consent from the member of staff.

    students - you need consent of parents (unless student is 16 or over)
    staff - you need thier permission.

    hope that helps
