A headteacher has written to parents telling them they must invite their child's entire class to birthday parties, and not just a chosen few.
Mark Brearey, the head of Kingswood Preparatory School in Bath, said it was 'divisive and unkind' to exclude some children from parties.
He claims that 99.9 of our parents are in total agreement with that," he said.
He added that if parents wanted to invite just a few of their child's friends, they should do it privately by email, not in a public place.
"If children feel like they have been left out by one of the class it can have a serious impact and it is something that doesn't need to happen. Why choose to exclude in a public context when you don't need to?" he said.
Do you agree with him?
