A British primary school headteacher is in the centre of a controversy after banning pupils from sending Christmas cards.

Jonathan Mason, head of Belton Lane Primary School in Grantham, Lincolnshire, said the tradition was bad for the environment.

However, parents said the move is not in the Christmas spirit and accused Mr Mason of “rank hypocrisy” after he reportedly announced the ban in a letter to all parents.

Belton Lane Primary is a mixed, community school for 275 pupils aged between four and 11. It was rated “good” in its latest Ofsted inspection.
