The Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL), conducted a snapshot survey of 249 primary and secondary schools. See here. They found that 85% had CCTV in their school. 7% said there were cameras in their classrooms and 15% said they had more than 20 cameras in their school. 10% said they had cameras in their school's toilets. (I hope they this footage doesn't get lost.)

At the same time Dr Susie Anderson of the British Dental Association says:"It really is a desperate situation when we have got parts of the country where the average 5 year old has lost three teeth." She sees the impact on children as " potentially devastating" unless changes to the NHS dental contract are made.

Has this government got its priorities in a twist?
