The role of Headteacher has many aspects to it, but I never imagined that ‘Traffic Warden’ would be one of them. Parking has been an issue for many schools over the years and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better.

Over the past week, I have witnessed feuding parents, accident near-misses and have received numerous email complaints.
