Parents banned from taking photos of their own children!!! Welcome to the new improved Nanny State...

Parents of children at a primary school have been banned from taking pictures of their own children at the annual sports day.

Mrs Ethelston's Church of England Primary School, in Uplyme, Devon, prohibited photos and video filming, claiming it was due to changes in child protection and images legislation.

It is the first time the school has taken such measures.

Parents criticised the move and said they felt there was no legal reason why they cannot take photos for personal use. More...

  1. Every time I want to film or photograph my kids, whether its at the school athletics or if they are performing on a stage your told you cant! why not?? It's not like there are other kids walking around in skimpy costumes or naked, this is absolutely pathetic!

    We should be able to capture and keep these precious moments forever, without the fear of being stigmatized and frowned upon like we are some sort of paedophile.

    I am starting a campaign as we will have no memories of our children when they get older.

    Even when you do film or photograph other people look at you as if your some sort of threat.
    I think that we should challenge all schools and authorities who prevent us recording these precious memories of our loved ones.

    Please sign our petition if you want to have your "denied memories" restored!
