A summer fair at Cramlington’s Hareside Primary School saw headteacher Geoff Love facing wet sponges in the stocks.
Deputy headteacher Beverley Morris said: “After a unanimous vote from staff the head was the first candidate for the stocks and he was disappointed how accurate the children were at throwing.”
The fair included a wide range of stalls, a tombola, a raffle, hook a duck and splat the rat.
Autism charity the Toby Henderson Trust attended the event to give parents and children the opportunity to find out more about what they do as they will be taking over an unused building on the school site in the near future.
Volunteers from the Guide Dogs for the Blind Association also paid a visit.
