Photos in Tapestry appearing on Facebook!


Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I've just been made aware that a parent has shared photos from their child's Tapestry journal and added them to Facebook!


Although it only shows their child, I feel uncomfortable about this!!


Have a missed a setting somewhere that would prevent this?

or do I need to make it clear to parents that they mustn't share?

What do other settings do?


Help!!! feeling shocked :wacko: :wacko: :wacko: :blink: :blink: :blink: :ph34r::ph34r::ph34r:

Lots of settings ask parents to sign to say they won't do this - however if it is only of one child, their child, whilst irritating doesn't pose a safeguarding risk - they probably put holiday snaps up too. It's more of a conversation about 'we asked you not to and it's disappointing that you did'.
It's not peculiar to Tapestry, schools have long struggled with parents posting photos of their children at school events. Parents have also taken their own photos of pictures in paper learning journals and posted them online.
It's more of a worry if they are posting pictures of other people's children as obviously they have no right to do that and there might be safeguarding issues - but again this is the 'photos at sports day or Nativity play' scenario that schools face. As Finleysmaid said a conversation with the parent with the suggestion that they (not their child) will be removed from Tapestry seems appropriate as compromising other children's privacy is not on.
