MY little one will be going to school on that day with a packed lunch, hot flask of Heinz Tomato soup, (his favourite) and a fully charged I-Phone to pass the time away whilst the teachers on picket duty take care of him. It is term time and I am not allowed under threat of a fine to take him out of school, plus I can't afford the time off work to stay home with him. A few more doing this will soon change their bullying attitude.
