    There are limited circumstances in which audio recording may be justified, subject to sufficient
    safeguards.

    These could include:
    *Audio based alert systems (such as those triggered by changes in noise patterns such as
    sudden shouting). Conversations must not be recorded, and operators should not listen in.

    *Two-way audio feeds from ‘help points’ covered by CCTV cameras, where these are
    activated by the person requiring assistance.

    *Conversations between staff and particular individuals where a reliable record is needed of
    what was said, such as in the charging area of a police custody suite6.

    *Where recording is triggered due to a specific threat, e.g. a ‘panic button’ in a taxi cab.

    In the limited circumstances where audio recording is justified, signs must make it very clear that
    audio recording is being or may be carried out.

    Still don't think that counts, as it would be blanket audio recording across a wide site, rather than specific targeted audio recording. Behavioural schools don't have any special legal status compared to normal ones, and we wouldn't be justified using audio in our school. This really should be ran past the ICO before implementation, as if you get it wrong you leave the school open to legal troubles.
