The Data Protection Act apparently lets you freely record your school child’s nativity. The headline of the BBC article is misleading though, because all that has been said is that it is not against a specific data protection law. It may be against a school or council’s child protection policy. Which is probably a stupid policy, but there we go. For the record, if you are worried that a parent is filming the children so he can share it around with a bunch of paedophiles, you should probably report the parent, not ban the rest of them.
