    • If you are absolutely certain* that you were parked OK, write a letter of complaint to the Headteacher and copy in the Chair of the school governors.   If you or the car were identifiable in any way from the photo (eg visible registration number, driver's face etc) I would very politely write that you resent the untrue suggestion that you had parked/had stopped/were waiting in a way that contravened any traffic regulations, and that you are sure that the school will understand that you would like an apology and a correction to be printed in the next newsletter.  (You can also clearly state that you were identifiable from the photo because other parents have mentioned it to you).   See if that works.   You don't want to go to court for defamation as you'll need access to about £10k in fees before you get out of bed.  You just want an apology and a correction.  If what you've told us is accurate, I don't see any reasonable school failing to say sorry.     *My wife is a former school governor and my experience listening to her is that very very few parents actually understand the meaning of the no stopping/no waiting signs and road markings outside schools.  Don't complain unless you are sure you weren't stopped where you shouldn't have been.
    • And they haven't offered a speed awareness course either?  (Have you done one in the last three years or is this in Scotland?)   And is one of the notices for 34 in a 30?  As Man in the Middle says, that ought to be below the level at which they take action.   (And sorry - I don't want to appear preachy - but...  there don't have to be any warnings or signs or lines on the road to advise you of the presence of speed cameras.  If you get away with an exceptional hardship argument you will need to stick to speed limits in future - whether you know there are cameras there or not.  NB Don't know if this applies to you, but most 30 mph limits are restricted roads with a system of streetlighting and don't even need speed limit signs - you are assumed to know this from the Highway Code).
    • It's up to you if you want to pay £300 you don't owe plus whatever Unicorn Food Tax with no basis in law whatsoever that they will have made up in the Letter Before Claim.   We'd prefer you didn't.   But you have received a LBC so it's make your mind up time.   So please    - post up photos of the signage in the dark that you'll have taken two months ago (post 14)    - post up details of planning permission for their signs you'll have found out after you got onto the council, again two months ago (again post 14)    - also let us know if you agree with Brassnecked's excellent letter or if you'd like to tweak bits depending on what you've found out    - upload the LBC.  Some of them are appallingly drafted and invariably contain Unicorn Food Tax which is all useful extra ammo    - also, where are you living now (post 35) and are you comfortable with legal communications arriving at your parents'?   If you look in our PPC Successes thread at the top of the page, you will see 275 times these cheats have been seen off with their tails between their legs (and all had the same "well known legal companies" (ho! ho!) on hand).  In reality 275 times is a massive underestimate, in all 275 cases there was a "moment of victory" IYSWIM where the PPC were thrashed in court or discontinued a claim or were called off by a supermarket chain, etc., etc.  There will have been at least that number again where they were told to Foxtrot Oscar and then crawled back under their stone.  They are eminently beatable but logically when you're in legal dispute you have to put some graft in to beat the other party.

Oh well.

 

I am going to put the idea to the parents as it is better than what they have come up with.

 

Most of them have suggested either a smart outfit, he dresses smart casual but there argument is no tie or jacket???, Or gift vouchers for burtons or a local shop that might not be any good else where.

If they insisted on vouchers then it would have to be something like Amazon online vouchers. You can find anything there. But I still think a watch is more appropriate and sentimental. All the kids can sign a big card or draw a picture for him.

I know you can get tea towels (boring i know but here me out) and the kids draw pic of the mselves just a little one about 2''x3'' and then they are all printed onto the the tea towel with their names printed under each drawing My mum had one from the school when she retired from teaching think it cost about £20.

 

Sentimental but usefull

Which is what l think OK the kids names can be put into a card which he can keep aswell. I think the vouchers would be a last resort IMO. I am tho open to other suggestions.

 

If it was to be vouchers I would more than likely go for something like game or gamestation or argos. I dont know if l have time to get them from amazon as i have found amazon and playcan take a while to deliver. I am still waiting on a present that was posted b4 christmas.

After careful talks with parents they have gone for the engraved watch with back up as argos or gamestation vouchers. One person did suggest burtons.

 

They also like the idea of a big card for the kids to say thanks and goodbye in.

I'm with hilaryfrances on vouchers. Unless you know him very well it's a difficult choice.

 

One other thought - you could get him an absolutely wonderful photo album, and start it with individual photos of all the children.

 

The funniest ever leaving present I heard about (and I can't remember who told me) was about a seriously obnoxious manager/teacher who was hated by everyone - staff, children, everyone. Knowing he lived in a fourth floor flat, on his final day they presented him with a lawnmower. (And of course he had to smile and say he was thrilled.)
