Photographs of pupils[edit]

What's the policy on including identifiable pictures of current pupils in articles? As here, Head girl and head boy. Thanks. Tacyarg (talk) 19:18, 19 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Please see WP:IUP#Privacy rights, and on the Commons, see [1]. I think it's creepy, but might pass both policies. Magnolia677 (talk) 19:30, 19 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
"Publishing a photo of an identifiable person in a private place usually requires consent, and Commons expects this even if relevant laws do not require it." A school is not a public place (try gaining entrance to one whilst students are inside and see what happens). Black Kite (talk) 19:36, 19 February 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Belated thanks. On balance, I've taken the image out, and will discuss on the article's Talk page if it is added back. Tacyarg (talk) 19:57, 18 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Pingry School has an RfC for possible consensus. A discussion is taking place. If you would like to participate in the discussion, you are invited to add your comments on the discussion page. Thank you. GuardianH (talk) 02:36, 10 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Union City High School (NJ) and its lede as a prototype?[edit]

There is a discussion here about including highly specific information about how many students are eligible for reduced-cost lunches and teacher:student ratios in the lede. Please join the discussion, because the article has been praised by editors and some want to use it as a prototype for many more. -- Melchior2006 (talk) 17:53, 13 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

I've reverted several times the addition of Ofsted judgements to the lead at Harton Academy. I've started a discussion on the Talk page about this - my view is that, because judgements change over time, it's not sensible to include them in the lead. Does that seem reasonable to members of this project? I'm wondering whether the other editor is editing on mobile and not getting notifications of messages on his Talk page. Thanks. Tacyarg (talk) 19:56, 18 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Update to this; other editors are now engaging in the discussion on the Talk page, but I'd welcome input from other editors with expertise on school articles. My view is still that Ofsted judgements shouldn't be in the lead, but I note that The Judd School does include the school's judgement in the lead, albeit possibly a special case because of the amount of evidence pointing to a very high achieving school in that case. Thanks. Tacyarg (talk) 11:09, 25 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Key people of Redlands High School[edit]

Perhaps some others wouldn't mind watching Redlands High School for a bit to make sure "Key people" being added to the article's infobox are actually worth adding. My guess is that DaquavionJohnsonSmith might have some connection to the school (student perhaps) and is adding names of current students to the infobox who meet their definition of "key people" without really establishing why. It could also just be someone goofing around. Anyway, I started a discussion on the article's talk page to try and get them to engage and perhaps they will; if they don't, however, if might be better for others to get involved so it's not just the two of us going back and forth. -- Marchjuly (talk) 14:23, 31 March 2024 (UTC)[reply]

There is a requested move discussion at Talk:City of Liverpool College#Requested move 14 March 2024 that may be of interest to members of this WikiProject. RodRabelo7 (talk) 01:54, 13 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Need Help with Nord Anglia Education[edit]

This corporation has, for quite some time, engaged in serious promotional editing and COI violations the articles related to their schools are stuffed with press releases and few independent sources. I need some help figuring out what articles get kept per notability and which get folded into the article on NAE itself. There probably needs to be a "list of NAE schools" article, given the way things are panning out. Allan Nonymous (talk) 14:36, 24 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
