Rated PG

It's okay, it's only Night at the Museum 2 (@lbtyhill)

There was a time when teachers could be trusted to make decisions for the children in their class, to do what they thought was best for them, to help them achieve their potential, to get on with the job. That time seems so long ago it could be described as a myth.Teaching is teetering on the edge of being nothing more than a pen pushing, tick boxing, result achieving, league table rising profession if it were not for the many talented, selfless, hard working and inspirational teachers that continue to persevere against never ending governmental interference, so that they can keep the myth alive.

So what caused this rant today?

Apparently you have to seek parental permission if you wish to show a PG rated film to children in your class. It left me lost for words until now. Is this true? I checked the classification out.

Children of any age may watch a PG rated film or DVD, with or without an adult. A ‘PG’ film should not trouble or worry a child aged eight or older. However the PG does tell parents that the content of the film may upset younger or more sensitive children. cbbfc guidelines

So I’m asking, does your school have to seek parental permission to show PG rated films?
