I thought I had heard every possible daft statement from those who lead our schools, but as usual I was wrong.
Darwen Vale High School, near Blackburn in Lancashire has raised the bar. Their Governors are claiming that the reason the kids behave so badly is all down to the wind and the rain. (Rather than because the Head is afraid to take control of them.)
Amazingly for teachers, the staff are actually going to try and do something about the situation. Tomorrow they are going on strike in protest at the lack of support from above in dealing with the scrotes.
It sounds like my old school, so well done to them and let's hope they succeed.
