A school has told parents to stop using their mobile phones in the playground so they speak to their children at pick-up time.
Wendy Cathie, head of St Peter’s CE Primary School in Leigh, near Wigan, has made the playground a mobile-free zone to encourage parents to listen to their child at the end of the day.
