Is this video clip ok for year 5.

Discussion in 'Primary' started by acceb, Feb 3, 2011.

  1. For a lesson tomorrow (that could be an observation lesson) I am planning to show two video clips to show different portrayals of Robin Hood.
    Do you think this clip is ok for year 5 starting at 0.49 seconds. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQsRpFzce4g
    I have informed parents that we may be watching a PG video clip - so consent is not an issue.
    Thanks for your advice.

  3. Do you mean you have just casually told them at the school gates? Or that you have sent a letter home with authorisation from the head teacher and received consent back from ALL of the parents/guardians? I don't think that it is as easy as informing them, especially as it is a PG.
    And I haven't looked at the youtube video because of internet issues. But if you will use it, make sure you download it first - I doubt youtube will be unblocked in school.

  4. Hi thanks for the reply.

    No- we have a text message service so all parents have had a text infroming them. We tend to do a 'opt out' policy so only parents who have a problem will contact the school.
    As it is only a short clip do we really need written consent??

  6. Well I would say that decision rests with your head teacher. They would need to see the clip you are watching, discuss with you the content of the clip, and the way you are using it, and then make a decision.
    As I said, I haven't watched it so don't know what it is like, but as Robin Hood was on BBC at a prime time slot, I don't think parents would have too much of an issue with clips from that.

    We just send a letter at the start of the year telling parents we will be showing selected clips from PG, 15 and 18 films during the year. We ask them to contact us if they don't want their children to see the clips. No-one ever answers.

    Then our HT just trusts our judgement, definitely wouldn't need to show him anything or hassle him for every single clip. If your school has the same and you are sure it is fine and is definitely justifiable educationally then you'll be fine.

    Best of luck.

    We showed Goodnight Mr Tom without asking. I'm a bit naughty though.
