Website Policy

Purpose of Website

Laddsworth Primary School values the contribution that a website can make to the life and role of the school in a modern society. The website has 4 important roles:

  1. To promote the school;
  2. To provide information to prospective parents and teachers, the wider community and the world;
  3. To act as a communication channel between teachers, parents, pupils and school management;
  4. To improve pupil learning;

Website Structure

There are two main sections to the site: -

  1. The front end published site, which is available to anyone in the world with Internet access
  2. The private back end site, which is available only to authorised members of the school community

Safeguards

The safety of the children and other users who appear or are referred to on the published site is of paramount importance. The school will ensure that no pupil can be identified or contacted either via or as a result of using, the school website.

Access and Approval

Links to external websites will be checked thoroughly before inclusion on the school website. The sites will be checked for the suitability of their content for their intended audience.

Any text written by pupils will be reviewed before inclusion to ensure that no personal details are accidentally included that could lead to the identification of the pupil.

All written work will be reviewed to ensure that it is in no way defamatory.

Written work will be checked to ensure (as far as possible) that no copyright or intellectual property rights are infringed.

All written material will be checked for its suitability for its intended audience.

Privacy

Adults have the right to refuse permission to publish their image on the site.

Parents have the right to refuse permission for their child's work and/or image to be published on the site.

Those wishing to exercise this right should express their wishes in writing to the Principal, clearly stating whether they object to work, images, or both being published, to the site.

Monitoring

An Editor will check material before it is uploaded or published to ensure that it is suitable and complies with the record of objections held by the Principal and with copyright laws (as far as is possible). Any persons named on a web page can ask for their details to be removed.

The web pages will be regularly reviewed for accuracy and will be updated as required. This review will occur at least annually. It will be the responsibility of an Administrator, school management, staff or authorised agents to ensure this happens.
