Full report: Devon mother criticises headteacher for asking daughter's party to be postponed for exams

A Devon mother has criticised a head teacher for asking her to postpone her daughter's birthday party, because it was due to be held the day before her younger daughter's exams.

Tina Adams from Tiverton has accused the teacher of 'trying to ruin the party'.

The headteacher at Castle Primary School in Tiverton says she never intended to cause distress but would rather be seen to be trying too hard than not hard enough.
