Its just bizarre, I was stood in there this morning, one dc was proudly telling another child that she went and visited a parent in prison yesterday because that parent had been naughty and had beat another older sibling up shock, another was telling everyone that they had been out till 2am with their dad while he was on "dirty beer".
Someone else was arguing and calling someone a tramp and saying they were going to buy them some soap and someone else still was saying they were going to buy out of date food for the harvest collection incase such a person got the stuff! I was just stood there watching all this happen thinking wtf? I tell you its such a lovely school in a well to do area but I certainly dont need coronation street grin maybe I should write a book!

There was once a massive fight between 2 mums at our school. The police had to be called and they were both done for Breach of the Peace. shock

Sounds more interesting than my playground chatter, which today focused on religious books for 6 yr olds....yawn

There was a fight today by the Yr1 entrance. Not fisticuffs but serious verbal stuff. About how close parents should stand to the entrance.

Could not believe it!!

blardy hell.. I can't wait to do the school run if this is what you get wink

I know. This is a primary school in a supposedly quiet sleepy village.

I work at the school and some of the kids backgrounds are also the most amazing stories some of them sadly extreme and not very nice and others just totally odd, honestly - I had no idea it would be like this.

one dad in the primary school my children went to turned up to pick his son up totally pissed
he was falling about, slurring, he was a total mess

the teacher refused to let him take him

the police were called

Thank god I live in rough London wink

This very rarely happens in my dc school (the one or 2 incidents I have witnessed where between separated parents and friends/supporters)

If you think the mum chatter is all revealing you should hear what the kids say at circle time.....it so hard to keep a straight face when you hand them over at the end of the day!!

Drop off/Pick up is not that exciting here I'm afriad. All very polite, passing the time of day, etc.

I like listening in on circle time - oh and reading the news books, which always seem to be done on a Monday after the weekend - I reckon teachers organise that on purpose! Mind you, didn't feel quite so pleased the week DD wrote about us going to a wedding and "My mummy likes wine...." comment hmm

And at primary I am finding out just how much information about home life some children will tell you to school -and not all is what mummy and daddy might want to be broadcast.

Oh it was fascinating in the last school mine were at, an international school in Brussels. Two of the teachers were having it off and were very public about their affair and two of the mums in DD1's class had, ahem, taken the southern route. grin

They go on the school bus now, so I don't have a clue what goes on.
