ROLES were reversed at Great Easton Primary School as pupils managed to get their own back on headteacher Damian Pye.
As part of the schools annual bouncy castle fun day, a competition dubbed as a 'Pie for Pye' encouraged children and parents to hurl cream pies at the teacher to help raise funds for new playground climbing equipment.
In total, £2500 was raised during the fun day after hundreds of people crammed through the school's gates.
A PTA spokesman said: "As well as the usual bouncy castles, children enjoyed the new attractions of a climbing wall, mini golf and go-karts. But by far the most popular event of the afternoon was the opportunity to put a cream pie in the face of the school headmaster.
"The PTA would like to stress that no headteachers were harmed during the course of this game!"
Traditional side-stalls included a lucky dip, teddy tombola and panning for gold proved to be very popular. And for those just wishing to relax in the sun there were cream teas, Pimms and a barbeque.
The spokesman added: "It was a fantastic day was had by all. The money will be added to our growing fund for new playground climbing equipment.
