A school has installed nearly 100 security cameras to monitor classrooms, corridors and play areas, it emerged yesterday.
The ¬£60,000-a-year surveillance system at Stockwell Park High is believed to be the most extensive in a school.
Cameras also film lessons to help staff improve their technique and may be used to expose poor teaching.
The comprehensive intends to kit out every classroom with the technology because staff say it helps tackle truancy, indiscipline and false allegations against them.
Teachers’ leaders last night warned against using the ‘Big Brotherish’ system.
