Copyright

Introduction

We respect the rights of authors and publishers to proper recompense and acknowledgement for their work. We understand that copying without permission could put the school at risk from legal action for infringement of copyright.

 

We acknowledge that the Copyright Licensing Authority, who are brokers for authors and publishers, exists to represent us, the users and to protect the interests and livelihoods of the rights holders. Therefore, we believe we have a moral and legal obligation to abide by the terms of the licence.

 

We believe literary works, dramatic works and performances, musical works and performances, artistic works, sound recordings, films, broadcasts, and cable programmes are protected by copyright.

 

We as a school community have a commitment to promote equality. Therefore, an equality impact assessment has been undertaken and we believe this policy is in line with the Equality Act 2010.

 

We believe it is essential that this policy clearly identifies and outlines the roles and responsibilities of all those involved in the procedures and arrangements that is connected with this policy.
