It is a difficult task

IT IS difficult to understand why the head of Priory Community School is sceptical about the new scheme for parents to sign a behaviour charter.

IT IS difficult to understand why the head of Priory Community School is sceptical about the new scheme for parents to sign a behaviour charter.

Over the past couple of weeks much has been reported in the Mercury about yobs on the rampage in North Worle and some of these yobs could well be members of Worle schools, including Priory. It is therefore essential that any scheme which involves parents is put into operation especially if it can help sort out the wheat from the chaff. A child's welfare starts with the parents and it is important that the parents rule the child, rather than the other way round. These days all parents think their children can do no wrong and schools believe that all their pupils are angels.

Unfortunately, in the real world, some parents and school teachers have no idea what children get up to and it is time to draw a line that children should not cross.

It is a difficult task in this day and age so any scheme that helps create better understanding and helps weed out those who have no respect for those around them, should be applauded.
