A SCHOOL that added an extra day onto the end of the holidays did it because they enjoy torturing parents, it has emerged.
Rather than using the time for training, staff at St Peter’s Secondary School spent the morning standing at the staff room window laughing at the horrified reactions of parents who arrived to find the gates still locked.
Headteacher Carolyn Ryan said: “Parents always turn up at the beginning of term moaning about how insanely tiring it is having the children all day, but parenting is a piece of piss in comparison to teaching.
“They whine after spending six weeks taking their kids to farm parks, but they should try teaching forty of them long division whilst simultaneously trying to stop them getting high from marker pens.
“It was a real morale booster for the staff to see them almost start crying when they realised they’d forgotten the inset day.”
Mum-of-two Emma Bradford said: “Even if the teachers are doing training they should be able to just put the children in a room, toss some biscuits in and lock the door.”
