A primary school headteacher has warned parents about children using social media after hearing “inappropriate language” in her classrooms.
Kerry Jones has written to parents of children at Phoenix Primary School, Laindon, asking them to monitor youngsters’ online activity.
The head is worried about pupils using mobile phones, tablets and computers to visit unsuitable websites.Because before the invention of the Internet (Thanks, Al Gore!), schoolchildren were totally oblivious to the world of profanity.
They never picked it up from parents or relatives or other schoolchildren…
Jerry Glazier, Essex general secretary for the National Union of Teachers backed Mrs Jones’s view.Yup, you’re clearly an idiot as well, then. But I guess we had warning with the ‘NUT’ bit.
Phoenix Primary School refused to comment further on the head’s message to parents.An appropriate name for a school destined to go down in flames.
