A HEADTEACHER stunned a pupil’s parents when he wrote a “sarcastic” letter telling them he would not be able to respond to their complaints for three years.
Michael Brennan, head of All Saints Roman Catholic High School in Rawtenstall, wrote to Billy and Linda Tompkins after they complained by e-mail that their son Mark was being unfairly treated.
Mr Brennan also told them that he “never reads” e-mails and suggested they send a letter to which he would decide “how or if” he responded.
He wrote: “Our sole job is to educate and teach our pupils, not spend our time listening to complaining parents.”
He then told them not to “waste your time” complaining to Lancashire County Council or the education offices, known as the Globe.
He added: “They do not run this school. I do.”
