Mind you it should never have had to come to this in the first place.
A primary school dinner lady sacked after telling a couple their seven-year-old daughter was being bullied today won her claim for unfair dismissal.
Carol Hill, 61, had dragged four boys away from Chloe David after finding her tied to a chain-link fence and being whipped with a skipping rope.
She lost her job at Great Tey Primary School in Essex after telling her parents about the incident.
And of course the Headmistress had another version to cover up the bullying.
Headmistress Deborah Crabb had written to Claire and Scott David claiming their daughter had been 'hurt in a skipping rope incident'.
And the sacking offense was.
Mrs Crabb told the panel that Mrs Hill was sacked for committing the 'offence' of 'going to the press'.
Let that be a warning to you all. Just shut up and do as you’re told. Don’t you know we’re part of the “Big Society” now.
