from Marion Molteno
1. All contacts from the website will come to me. I will monitor them, not include inappropriate ones, and there will be no opportunity on the website for on-line comments from strangers.
2. I need to know that a parent or an adult responsible for the child knows that the child is contributing to the magazine, and is happy for this to happen. You can send contributions via our contributions page or by email. If children have their own email address, they can send contributions themselves but should always copy the email to a parent/carer. If the contribution has been edited in any way, I will contact the adult so they will see the final entry before we post it.
3. Only 1st names of contributors will be used on the website, and no identifying details (place, school) will be given. I will check contributions to make sure they don’t say anything which could enable individuals to be identified. It may sometimes be appropriate to say the age of the contributor, unless you ask us not to.
4. We’re keen to get photographs as they will obviously make the magazine much livelier, but items without photos are also fine. A photo can be a stand-alone entry with a caption about the activity, or can accompany any written item submitted. If your child would like to send a photo but you don’t want faces identifiable, you could send ones which are distant, from the back etc , but which will still capture the sense of activity.
5. Where a photo accompanies a written text, or is given a caption, a child’s name will usually be used (‘Tess decorating her cake’, etc). If you prefer, children can take a pen-name for these, or even for all their contributions. I will need to know their real name but it won’t appear on the site.
6. My contact will be with the parent I am in touch with through the contributions. I will leave it to you to consult with the other parent or responsible adult if you feel they might have a different view.
