  1. Has anyone mentioned that you can't show a 15 certificate film to 14 year olds without their parent's permission?

    Good point
    I knew an RE teacher HOD who got into big trouble for showing clips of Robin Prince of Theives - the really great bits related to RE - to year 9's. A parent complained because it is a film with rape in it - and the complaint went to the governors. He was in real danger of losing his job. I don't know how it went. Has anyone else ever suffered from this kind of thing.
    Robin Prince of Theives was PG.
    That reminds me of another good film - Brave Heart

  3. The Boy in Striped Pyjamas can be picked up at supermarkets for a fiver or less. Yr 9, after Judaism... Boys, girls, and teacher all in tears at the end... no need for class notes...lesson learned!

    Pay it
  4. If I was going to show the kids a 15 the head of department would send letters home asking for permission.
    At the moment we are doing the crucifixtion, and I know there is a lot of material out there on that.
    Personally I'd love to show them The Greatest Story Ever Told just for John Wayne's cameo... ;)
