We like to share our most exciting and inspiring Kingswood moments via our social media channels. It is a fantastic way for parents and other groups to see what happens at our centres and for you and your group to look back on your experience. You are welcome to use any photographs we post of your group in your own communications.
From time to time you may see the centre social media representatives walking around with an iPad taking photos and videos of the activities, they will always ask the
party leader's permission before photographing the children.
It is the responsibility of the party leader to obtain permission from parents/ guardians for children to be photographed for social media purposes. This may be covered by the school or group's consent form or you may obtain permissions for your Kingswood visit separately. A template photography consent form can be found below:
