CCTV Statement to Parents

Wensley Fold CE Primary Academy operates a Closed Circuit TV (CCTV) system to improve security and ensure the safety of our staff, children and visitors whilst on site. Cameras will be located across the grounds and inside the buildings

The system is set up in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and will be used specifically to:

  • Maintain a safe environment.
  • Ensure the welfare of staff and children.
  • Deter criminal acts against persons and property.
  • Assist the police in identifying persons who have committed an offence.

Our CCTV Policy is available on our website and will hopefully alleviate any concerns you have regarding the use of CCTV on the site.

We have put together some frequently asked questions about CCTV and the use of it in our academy so that you are fully informed.
