A school has ordered its parents to behave after a playground scrap.

Staff at Moulsecoomb Primary School in The Highway, Lewes Road, Brighton, has written to parents saying aggression and abusive language will not be tolerated after two separate incidents involving adults in one week.

They included a parent hitting a member of the school community, use of “foul and abusive” language towards a member of staff and an adult shouting at someone else’s child about an alleged incident.

In its weekly newsletter the school stated that anyone who is abusive towards a member of staff or a child will first receive a warning and then be banned from the school site if their behaviour continues.
