There are times when we will take video recordings of events in and around school. The best way for us to share these is by using YouTube. The videos are public so that we can share them with parents and children.
Our YouTube channel is available here: https://www.youtube.com/user/RidersFederation
Can anyone watch the videos?
Yes. The videos are public and are shared via the channel. They are also searchable too. We are mainly using YouTube as a way of hosting our videos so that we can put them on our blog.
Is it safe?
Yes. Although anyone can view the videos, we have switched on a feature that means the children will not see any comments on the videos unless an adult has checked them first. This works in the same way as our school blog.
Can the children watch these videos in school?
Yes. YouTube has been enabled for all pupils within school. We have discussed the potential use of YouTube (and other sites) and the children are fully aware that if they see anything inappropriate, they should tell their teacher. This is the same message that we give them for blog comments, emails or any other websites that they encounter.
If you have any further questions, please contact your child’s teacher.
