Please note that this policy is currently under review


UCHP provides a camera for staff and children to use to support the activities for children and this must only be used for work purposes. Playworkers and visitors must not use their personal cameras to take photos of the children at Playscheme. UCHP will remain vigilant and ensure that only children with parental consent have their photos taken. To ensure the appropriate use of this equipment, and to safeguard children, only the camera and recording equipment belonging to UCHP may be used to take appropriate and relevant images of children, such as events, activities and to support developmental observations. It is not appropriate to take photos of bruising or injuries on a child for child protection purposes; these should be drawn onto a body map. Images must be used in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and only if parental and child consent has been given. Parents are able to give or refuse consent via the Registration Form.
