In line with the RFU, Overton positively encourage parents and spectators to take photographs of participants involved in rugby union to celebrate the ethos and spirit of the sport. However the following guidelines should be followed;
- Written parental permission must be sought for photographs to be taken by the club and parents should be informed of how the photos will be used.
- Photographs should be of the activity or team not individual children.
- Parents may be asked to register their intentions if they wish to take their own photographs.
Further guidance can be found in the RFU Safeguarding Toolkit;
