The school has adopted the following procedures for our website regarding the use of photographs.


  • If a child is named on the website, only their first names are given.
  • Should a child be named, there will be no picture of that child.
  • Where a photograph is used which shows a pupil, no name is displayed.


This ensures that visitors cannot link images of pupils to names of pupils.


The school follows a policy of requesting permission from parents before using images which show children on the school website or social media streams. 


St Paul's is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. Staff, governors and volunteers require an enhanced DBS disclosure and annual safeguarding training. 


If you are concerned about a child and you feel they are being abused, neglected or at risk of abuse/neglect, then you should consider making a safeguarding child referral.
