Cost of spending a penny

I see from Penny Raven's letter (TES, February 20) that little has changed since I retired from teaching 18 months ago.

Not too long before that I and a colleague, having been on yard duty, were admonished by a visiting inspector for taking a "toilet break". We left our classes in the care of fully-qualified nursery nurses for some three minutes but were told this was not acceptable.

The inspector could not offer a solution. It certainly gave a whole new meaning to the term "wet playtime".
