Online Journal Policy

Policy Statement:

This policy is to keep children safe and to respect everyone’s right to privacy.  It also recognises that some images may be prevented by law to be shared on social media and other online sources. Some children in our care may be protected children and therefore would be in danger from sharing of their photographs on the internet.

Procedures

To protect children the following is adopted:

  • Children’s images included in online journals are for your viewing only.  All images uploaded to the learning journal are owned by Little Footsteps Childcare Ltd.
  • No copies are to be made of any images without written consent of Little Footsteps Childcare Ltd.  Such permission would not reasonably be refused.
  • For child protection reasons all images are protected by copyright and Little Footsteps Childcare Ltd does not grant permission to share, download or print any images included in the online journal without prior permission.  Again, such permission will not be refused as long as only your own child is shown and there are no legal reasons why the image can’t be shared.
  • The online learning journal system is licenced to Little Footsteps Childcare Ltd (Childminder Agency) and the contents are used for the purposes of monitoring performance and compliance with the EYFS.

 

BY USING THE ONLINE JOURNAL SYSTEM YOU ARE DEEMED TO HAVE ACCEPTED THIS POLICY AND ANY POLICY ASSOCIATED WITH THE ONLINE SYSTEM PROVIDER.
