Main thing we had issue with was person who created the bebo account was sending messages to other students saying they where me (nothing nasty). But this of course could have has serious implications..

A picture release is required if you are on a commercial shoot for some type of publication. Typically in the form of a written contract.

What do you mean 'purged'? You have the right to confiscate the cameras (from pupils only, not anyone else) but you do not have the right to do anything other than lock them somewhere. The data on the card belongs to that person, not the school and accessing it could be classed as a breach of the Computer Misuse Act, as most mobile phones are now computers. It would also be a breach of the Data Protection Act, as you do not have permission to use that data etc...

A couple of my schools are in long recognised areas where there's a lot of fostering so we we have quite a few children where the use of a camera on site has to be VERY carefully regulated.
There's no policy in place as far as I know for children using cameras but parents and staff are advised that they cannot share or otherwise publish photos of anyone other than their own children.
In this instance the safety of the children is paramount and whilst it might be trampling on someones civil rights I'd like to think that stopping homicidal parent from getting hold of Junior, trumps "oooh look at this nice snap of X", any day.
