The safety and protection of children Hannah works with is her top priority. With that in mind, she’s prepared this policy document for absolute transparency.
Working with children in schools and educational institutions
Hannah Kennedy-Jackson works with an Enhanced DBS/CRB Certificate and abides by the rules of working with children in your school.
Outside contact and social media
Experience has taught Hannah that it is inevitable that students she has worked with may find her websites and social network profiles after her work in a school or college is completed. Her policy on this is strict, and works as follows:
Facebook friend requests will not be accepted. Instead, students will be advised to ‘like’ Hannah’s business page.
Students messaging/emailing to say thank you or commenting on the work Hannah has done with them will receive a reply thanking them for their participation and some words of encouragement.
Public questions or requests for help will be answered publicly in the best way Hannah can.
Direct or private messages with questions or requests for help will also be answered.
Direct messages containing concerning or inappropriate content will be forwarded straight to the students head of year with an attached screenshot.
Requests for extended or face-to-face help will require authorisation from the school or parent/guardian, and this will be made clear to any students requesting assistance in that way.
In some circumstances, Hannah may request either a photographer to be present to take photographs of her delivering, or request access to photos taken by the school. This will only happen if Hannah receives a signed copy of her photography authorisation form from the school and/or the school has received express permission from parents/guardians of any children featured in the photographs. Where possible, photographs will be taken in a way that does not identify specific children (e.g backs of heads only).
