    Considering Chulmleigh College for September 2022 entry?
    We are offering a number of small group tours with our Executive Headteacher Michael Johnson, Deputy Executive Headteacher Neil Payne and SENDCO Laura Mackie. After school for those who may not be able to visit in working hours and morning tours for those who wish to visit during a normal school day.  Being able to see the school ‘in action’ provides an excellent window into what we offer here, and with the tours being led by our Senior Leadership Team in a small group environment, you will have ample opportunities to ask any questions you may have. 
    We are offering a wide range of dates for these tours, please click on the links below to book.

Mobile Phone and Camera Policy

Statement of Intent

We take steps to ensure that there are effective procedures in place to protect children, young people, and vulnerable adults from the unacceptable use of mobile phones and cameras in the setting.

Procedures

Personal Mobile Phones

  • Personal mobile phones belonging to members of staff are not used on the premises during working hours.
  • At the beginning of each individual’s session, personal mobile phones are stored in the staff office. 
  • In the event of an emergency, personal mobile phones may be used in the privacy of the office, with permission from the manager.
  • Members of staff ensure that the telephone number of the setting is known to immediate family and other people who need to contact them in an emergency.
  • If members of staff take their own mobile phones on outings, for use in the case of an emergency, they must not make or receive personal calls as this will distract them.
  • Members of staff will not use their personal mobile phones for taking photographs of children on outings.
  • Parents and visitors are requested not to use their mobile phones whilst on the premises.  There is an exception if a visitor’s company or organisation operates a lone working policy that requires contact with their office periodically throughout the day.  Visitors will be advised of a quiet space where they can use their mobile phone, where there are no children present.

Cameras and Videos

  • Members of staff must not bring their own cameras or videos recorders into the setting.
  • Photographs and recordings of children are only taken for valid reasons, ie. to record their learning and development, or for displays within the setting.
  • Photographs or recordings of children are only taken on equipment belonging to the setting.
  • Camera and video use is monitored by the setting manager.
  • Where parents request permission to photograph or record their own children at special events, permission will first be gained from all parents for their children to be included.
  • Photographs and recordings of children are only taken of children if there is written permission to do so (found on the individual child’s Registration Form).
