    Exactly.

    The schools aren't going to close next Friday lunchtime without notice.

    Likely for example - from next term the school will close at Friday lunchtime.

    It is up to you whether you want to look after your children or go to work.

    One particularly ignorant poster on here tried to make out that schools were just for teaching children and were not there to look after the children i.e. child mind. He is so very wrong. There is a care network in all schools dealing with all kinds of horrific incidents with children.

    Schools are not just there to teach. Motman is wrong. Again.

    I agree, but they're also not there to watch your kids until you deign it time to fetch them again (at least not with any degree of regularity, they aren't).

    I never said they were. However, there are contingencies for late parents - whatever their reason for being late.

    So you earn less whilst getting less...

    And we ain't seen nothing yet!

    Well, yes. If you feel it’s your responsibility to look after your own children. Not if you think it’s the states responsibility though.

    Hmm. That seems to contradict this site. I wonder who is right and who is making things up as they go along and talking ballcocks to win a point.

    http://www.lawandparents.co.uk/what-in-loco-parentis-means-you.html

    I’ve cut the relevant part out for you so you can’t tell me you can’t find it. Hey, you’d better get on to them pronto to let them know they are giving out incorrect information. Boyo.

    What Teachers Can and Can’t Do
    • Teachers are not responsible for children after school hours. If a child is not collected after school, the child can be referred to social services.
    • Teachers do not have to supervise pupils during the lunch break.

    Lol. Who mentioned after school hours? Not me. Do you know what happens long before the child is referred to SS?

    As long as the child is on the school premises (or sometimes not as long as the child is wearing the uniform) then that child is responsible and under the care of the school during school hours. Including the lunch break.

    Do try harder pillock.

    Motman pretends that the word "school" means the same as "teachers"

    Some schools provide before and after school clubs for an hour giving parents flexibility to pick up and drop their kids off.

    I dont know how this has become an argument into whether schools are childminders other than resident RWR making arguments into deflecting the issue of underfunding.
