Of course everyone will want to commemorate these milestones and there is often only a split second between the taking of a wonderful photo or performance video and the posting of that same pic to the internet. It will often include class members. An arts educator or studio owner should stop and think about this. No one wants a picture of their child floating around the internet, so how can you help your students and their families share their joy while safeguarding your students’ privacy?</span></p>\n<p><span>Developing a broad-based policy around safeguarding your students, see <a href=\"/articles/safeguarding-your-students-art-school-part1\" rel=\" noopener\">Part 1</a>, will help you to add a section on filming and photographing students that is consistent with your operating principles. Make sure your parents and staff sign an agreement that includes a commitment not to identify students by name in any photo and have a signed consent form by the parents on file in case professional photographers are brought in. Naturally the photographers should sign an agreement also and should never be left alone with the students. For promotional purposes on a website, for example, it might be best to use commercial stock photos.</span></p>\n<p><span>If images remain in your possession, store hard copies in a locked drawer and electronic copies in a protected folder with restricted access. Do not store them on unencrypted devices, like a mobile phone or laptop. If you issue photo ID cards, make sure you comply with any data protection legislation.</span></p>\n<p><span>Small mistakes can have big repercussions, so once you have your policy and practice in place and have explained everything to your instructors, staff, parents and students, make sure your <a href=\"/en-ca/protégé\" rel=\" noopener\">Protégé insurance policy</a> is in effect to safeguard you and your business against an allegation of improper behavior. Your students are precious and so is your studio.</span></p>\n<p><a href=\"/articles/artseducationschool-0-0-0\" rel=\" noopener\"><span>PART

Safeguarding Your Students Part 2

Dance school, art school insurance

Safeguarding your Students and Protecting Your Organization (Part 2)

Filming & Photographing Children at School

Your school will be filled with joyous events that mark the achievements of your teachers and their students. Of course, everyone will want to commemorate these milestones and there is often only a split second between the taking of a wonderful photo or performance video and the posting of that same pic to the internet. It will often include class members.

An arts educator or studio owner should stop and think about this. No one wants a picture of their child floating around the internet, so how can you help your students and their families share their joy while safeguarding your students’ privacy?

Developing a broad-based policy around safeguarding your students, see Part 1, will help you to add a section on filming and photographing students that is consistent with your operating principles. Make sure your parents and staff sign an agreement that includes a commitment not to identify students by name in any photo and have a signed consent form by the parents on file in case professional photographers are brought in. Naturally the photographers should sign an agreement also and should never be left alone with the students. For promotional purposes on a website, for example, it might be best to use commercial stock photos.

If images remain in your possession, store hard copies in a locked drawer and electronic copies in a protected folder with restricted access. Do not store them on unencrypted devices, like a mobile phone or laptop. If you issue photo ID cards, make sure you comply with any data protection legislation.

Small mistakes can have big repercussions, so once you have your policy and practice in place and have explained everything to your instructors, staff, parents and students, make sure your Protégé policy is in effect to safeguard you and your business against an allegation of improper behavior. Your students are precious and so is your studio.
