Staying Safe

At Arnold Hill Academy we value the importance of helping all children and young people stay safe. We have put together a selection of advice and tools that we hope you will find useful in keeping your child safe both online, and in the physical world.

Image Consent

At Arnold Hill Academy we often use photographs and videos to capture our students’ learning experiences and memories. These images may be used in the academy’s prospectus and other printed material, as well as on our website and social media sites such as YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. From time to time, we may be visited by the media who will take photographs or film footage of events. Students will sometimes appear in these images, which may then be published in local or national newspapers, in televised news programmes and on social media sites.
We follow the guidance provided by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) on taking photographs in schools and the Data Protection Act 1998. Consent to use images and videos lasts throughout your child’s time at Arnold Hill Academy and continues to apply to images already in circulation once they leave. You can write at any time and ask the academy to stop using your child’s images, at that point they would not be used in future publications but may continue to appear in publications already in circulation.
Changes to the information we hold about your child can be made, at any time, by logging on to Parent View on the Academy’s website. Further information can be viewed on the Parent View section of our website.

Pintsize Theatre Company

The Pintsize Theatre Company recently spent the day with our Year 9 students performing and discussing their play LuvU2. The play covered aspects of bullying, sexting and grooming to increase students' awareness of internet and personal safety. Students were given the chance afterwards to discuss the topic with each other, and trained staff, to raise self awareness.
