Head teacher creates wellbeing concerns

"FURIOUS pupils have accused their new head teacher of banning them from their school`s toilets."

"More than 2000 people have signed an online petition calling on Perth Grammar School head Fiona Robertson to apologise."

"The petition, launched at midnight on Monday, says the clampdown is `idiocy` and a breach of kids` human rights. And one parent slammed Miss Robertson, saying: `I am disgusted by such outdated ideals and behaviour.`"

"School chiefs confirmed the toilets were now closed during lesson times in a bid to keep pupils in their classrooms."

"A Perth and Kinross Council spokeswoman said: `There has been an ongoing issue with a large number of pupils asking to be excused during class time.`"

"But she said kids could get a key from reception in emergencies..."

"In a newsletter sent to parents, Miss Robertson condemned `inappropriate and completely unnecessary postings on social media` about the toilet policy."
