GCSE COURSEWORK dates are to be moved to allow pupils enough time to eat all their Easter eggs.
20-minute Creme Egg breaks were brought in from January until Good Friday last year, with one pupil successfully suing his school for the right to eat Smarties Mini Eggs instead.

English teacher Joanna Kramer said: “Some of them stretch it out to a month.
“‘Sorry Miss, Jordan has a big Yorkie Egg to tackle today so he can’t come in.’
Atheist parent Wayne Hayes said: “Why should religion get to impose its weird dietary precepts on education?
“Pupils should eat eggs in their own time, unless it’s a Star Wars egg because you have to respect the Jedi.”
