With the ever changing legal framework surrounding online privacy, MySchool fully understands the needs of schools to be able to manage consent for publication, and participation in certain subject areas (i.e Religious studies, Yearbook, Website etc). Myschool facilitates collecting this information and storing within the Legal tab. If you need to ask permission for outings or events then use the permission tool.
