We got a letter home yesterday reminding us that because some children's parents/guardians have refused permission for their children to be photographed, no-one is allowed to take any photographs of any of the events with the children in.
This seems a little unfair on those of us that like to send photos / small videos of our kids in things at school to distant grand parents.
We also run the risk of losing a chunk of social history (OK, this may be a little over dramatic).
My take on it is that it's a schoolrule, not legislated against and I'll take my chance with getting caught.
What other options are there? Excluding kids without the relevant permissions from plays / sports days etc.
It's not quite elf and safety gone mad, but is it on the same spectrum?
