Default so, how far can you push it...

...with a headteacher/school...

i've been really, really happy with my kids' school for the last three years, but some stuff in the last few weeks has really pissed me off, and complaining to the headteacher shows she doesn't give a shit...

we've found out she owns the land the school is on, albeit via a local, so i guess she reckons she's in a pretty strong position...

i don't want my kids to suffer, so how far can you push your complaints...?

Have you tried speaking to other parents and getting a consensus. If it's a common issue, better with weight of numbers behind you.

Lead the militant crew....

yeah, and everyone i have spoken to feels the same...and those who have complained have been told, like me, that they are the only ones...i'm just hoping that on wednesday, they will turn up and say what they think...
