    I can't see how it's legal. Whilst it's ok to film you just walking around school (like walking out the classroom, into the corridoors, etc) it's certainly not ok to film you actually going toilet for obvious reasons. At my old secondary school, (going to back somewhere around 2000) I remember one of the PE teachers saying they can't install CCTV in the changing rooms (for theft and the like) because you can't film people getting changed. Whereas if it's in a classroom, it's ok.

    If you're concerned that they are recording you weeing you could easily query what is visible on the camera. It may be that it is purposely positioned to avoid the urinals or even that it's fake

    Another student was doing a student receptionist thing and saw they weren't fake and that they did get the urinals in
