A primary school head has quit teaching after more than 20 years - blaming Government red tape for leaving her feeling frustrated and unhappy.
Kit Messenger, Head of Manor Field Primary School at Burgess Hill in Sussex, has sent her resignation letter to parents. In the document, she says the pressure to turn schools into academies and the focus on some subjects is leaving children poorly prepared for the future.
The school's governors say they support her decision, and that she will leave this summer. Parents have said their children will miss her. In the video the headteacher explains her reasons.
