With the sudden move to virtual schooling, many member schools have had to quickly make decisions on which student sessions and interactions to record. How do schools balance their commitment to keeping children safe whilst at the same time upholding their right to privacy and confidentiality?
In this webinar, we will discuss:
- What are the legal aspects schools need to consider – from the perspective of local law and GDPR
- When is recording appropriate? What do schools need to consider when deciding when/why they are going to record student sessions?
- What type of risk analysis should schools be doing regarding recording? Do you have any guidance or templates for this?
- What about consent – does this need to be written consent from all students and parents?
- How do schools handle storing the recordings? For how long do they keep them?
- Troubleshooting: Do all 1-1 sessions need to be recorded? How about learning support or tutoring? What about small groups where only 1 student shows up – do you record?
- Counselling sessions – is this a blanket no (except for supervision and with the express consent of parents/students)
- Child protection considerations – when would it be appropriate to record an interaction if it was related to a CP concern
