If they are digital, you could blur the faces. But to be honest, then they wouldn't show happiness. I also think that this safeguarding thing is being taken a bit too far. There is really nothing that could be anti-safeguarding in showing these photos. Send one with a wide view of the classroom with no close-ups. I hope you have a nice positive lesson observation to show! Best wishes _______________________________________ TheoGriff. Member of the TES Careers Advice Service.
