We don't have specific policy as if you try to create a policy for every 
situation you would have a never-ending list.
We tell them in general terms that regardless of the site they are 
uploading to or posting on, they should not have any identifying 
features *including* school uniforms. School uniforms in particular can 
attract the sort of people you don't want to be in contact with.
If they are using mySpace etc, they should be set to private.
I semi regularly trawl these sites for our students and if they are 
identifiable I catch up with them at school (I have to do it at home as 
they are blocked at school) and have a word to them. Often they are very 
surprised that I know anything about it.
