A MOTHER who pleaded guilty to assaulting the head of a London church
junior school has been bound over to keep the peace for six months and ordered by the court to pay him pound;25 compensation.
The attack, cited by the NAHT, occurred after the alleged theft of a teacher's property by the woman's son.
The headteacher said: "I let her into the school because I tought she wanted to talk to me. She made all sorts of demands and then turned rough. She hit me about the head and punched me in the eye. My secretary called the police. In nearly 40 years in teaching, 23 as a head, I had never been physically assaulted before. It was right to make a stand and prosecute. It hasn't put me off teaching but it does make you sad."
