UK Primary school found in breach of data protection for not informing parents of CCTV cameras in toilets.
Parents are seeking legal advice after a primary school in Neasden was found to have breached data protection legislation by not telling them there were CCTV cameras in the children's toilets. Cameras were spotted by unsuspecting parents taking part in a coffee morning tour of classrooms at Mitchell Brook Primary School in September.
The school failed to notify parents they were installing CCTV cameras in the toilets, and failed to put up appropriate signage alerting the children. Parents launched a petition to have the cameras removed gaining more than 100 signatures, and are now seeking legal advice as they believe their children's privacy was breached.
