We are required under EYFS to share information with other settings and professionals about the children in our care and while we do not need permission to do this I require you to say you agree to this in order for me to comply with DfE requirements.
PHOTOGRAPHS-
I understand that photographs will be taken of my child to use within the setting and that my child may be in photos with other children. I agree that these photos can be taken, stored and deleted under GDPR guidelines and am aware that I have the right to withdraw this permission at any time (see GDPR policies)
