Head teachers under siege: One in 10 ‘assaulted by a PARENT’

Schools are stepping up security as figures show one in ten headteachers has been assaulted by parents.
The violence includes throwing chairs or desks, beating up teachers and hurling barrages of vile abuse or threats.

Some parents are angry their child has been disciplined or refused permission to go on holiday in term time.

Sticks and stones: Teachers are living in fear as some parents, angry their child has been disciplined or refused permission to go on holiday in term time, are increasingly turning to violence (posed by models)
One headteacher was even whipped with a coat and another had the word ‘bitch’ scratched into her car.

Another has been punched in the face, bitten, kicked, spat at, had  her hair pulled and a hand put down her top.

The problem has left many too afraid to walk across school car parks in thedark, according to the survey of 500 staff carried out by the National Association of Head Teachers.
