I picked up my dgd 11 year 6 today from school. She told me that this morning she had drunk a lot of water so by the time she got into class needed a wee but the teacher wouldn't let her go. She said she sat with her legs crossed for about half an hour but was becoming desperate so asked again.The teacher refused again and told her to wait until morning playtime. Dgd says she tried to tell her she could not wait that long, but the teacher cut her off and said she was going to lose her playtime if she mentioned the toilet again and that no meant no. Dgd did hold until break but said she was really uncomfortable.
