The management of a school in the North of England have been desperately seeking the instigator(s) of a series of leaflets ridiculing the management and circulated around the school.
It followed 2 incidents of bullying when a deputy head screeched at teachers "If you don't like it here you can f*** off" in response to teachers having a moan about their bosses.
The first leaflet was entitled "School Official Newsletter" and gave the school a motto "If you don't like it ....". It then went into the schools behaviour policy, and coined the now much used phrase in schools "severe letting off".
