Sports day parent ban overturned

A VILLAGE primary school has made a U-turn on a decision to ban parents from attending the annual sports day today (Wednesday).

Upwell Community Primary School hit the headlines after teachers announced parents would likely be barred after a small group of parents threatened to pull their children out of school over fears strangers would be on the school premises.

But headteacher James McBurney said postponing the day had given the school time to look at the arrangements and reassure parents. He also said a meeting will be set up for parents to discuss their concerns.
