We follow advice from the DfE and all photograph subjects have signed permission.
 
No, schools and local authorities are free to decide on their own policies relating to the use of such images or the release of associated information for their own publicity purposes. We do, however, advise that photographs and video images of pupils and staff are classed as personal data under the termsof the Data Protection Act 1998. Therefore using such images for school publicity purposes will require the consent of either the individual concerned or in the case of pupils, their legal guardians.
For Bonfire Night, we got to look around the fire engine and learned how to be safe around fireworks.
We had a brilliant time in spooky science!
