At William Hulme's Grammar School, we take privacy very seriously and that includes taking great care with images of our students. Sometimes we take photos of students enjoying their learning, to share with the school community and beyond. We feel this enhances the learning experience for our students, their families and their friends.
We just need to know we have your consent to use images of your child in this way. You can be sure we will act responsibly when we use photos to minimise the risks, and you can read more about how we do that below. Images of pupils may be used in the following ways:
- On wall displays around school
- On our website, our social media sites and other electronic communications
- In our prospectus and other printed publications that we produce for educational and promotional purposes
- In the media, e.g. if a newspaper photographer or television film crew attend an event organised by the school.
To give us your consent, complete the online form using the link below. We will record this preference and follow your instructions.
