Social Media Policy

The LAD recognises and embraces the benefits and opportunities that social media offers and uses these to promote the academy, celebrate the achievements of students and to keep the school community informed of events and deadlines.

For these purposes the LAD may arrange for photographs or videos to be taken of academy activities and publish these on our website or social media channels. No children’s names will be used unless express permission is obtained at the time of publication or posting.

As parent/guardian you have the right to ask for any images to be removed at any time by contacting the LAD.
