RELEASE FORMS FOR PUBLICATION
OF STUDENT WORK OR IMAGES
These Word documents are release
forms where schools wish to publish student work or images. For students under
the age of 18, these forms must be signed off by parents or guardians. Please
note that where student work is published on school, or other Internet sites,
the student retains copyright of their own work. Please see SOFWeb's copyright
page for more information about schools and copyright.
SOFWeb recommends some simple steps
to protect students when publishing student images or work on the web.
Do not publish student's last
names or other information which might make students individually identifiable.
Do not publish student's personal
contact details, i.e. home phone numbers, addresses or personal email addresses.
Where contact details are to be included use class email addresses or the
school's telephone number. Where a class email address is included, care should
be taken that the mailbox be checked first by teachers.
Where possible, publish group
photographs rather than individual images of students. Schools might publish
the image of a class or other group activity, and identify students generically
by class or activity, i.e. "Grade 4A", or the "Year 7 hockey
