    What’s the rule with recording children aged 7-11 for a fitness project/presentation?
    Advice or direction on where I can find this answer would be greatly appreciated.

    What does your school policy say? That's the starting point. GDPR doesn't have detailed rules about things like that, only general principles. It's up to your headteacher/governors/academy trust how those principles are translated into practice for projects like yours in your school.

    And it isn't all about GDPR either. It's also a safeguarding issue.

    It depends what you are going to do with it?

    GDPR sets out seven key principles:
    • Lawfulness, fairness and transparency
    • Purpose limitation
    • Data minimisation
    • Accuracy
    • Storage limitation
    • Integrity and confidentiality (security)
    • Accountability
    So looking at a film
    Who are you going to show it to?
    Will it have sound?
    Are children identifiable by their name if it has sound?
    How long are you going to keep it for?
    Will you get permission from parents if its for outside broadcast (safeguarding as well)

    There is absolutely no reason why it cannot be done, everybody tries to blame something GDPR, Health & Safety, Political Correctness just to name a few.

    Do it but do it but do it right.
