A friend writes local history books. His latest is a 'Then and Now' style with photographs of buildings and locations showing how they looked in Edwardian times and how they look now. He wants to use a class photo of a local primary school, there are many of them around in postcard form and they show the way kids dressed back then. He wants to show a form group from 2012 from a local Primary. As a Secondary teacher, I think he is unlikely to get permission, which is a shame as the photo would be published in a high quality book. When I take and use photos of kids at school, I make sure they are in a group and never publish names or ages with them, and yet, in the local paper, photos of individuals are often published and their name and age written in the description. His photo would be a group shot with a description on how their dress style has changed over the years. Any thoughts from Primary staff, or, hopefully, a Headteacher? Thank you in advance.
