A MUM has urged parents who have disputes with others not to resolve them on school grounds.

The message, from Treuddyn resident Elaine Davies, follows an attack which took place after she dropped her children at Parc y Llan primary school in July last year.

Defendant Chloe Jones, aged 28 and of Maes Glas in Treuddyn, was sentenced for her actions towards the complainant on Thursday.

The court that heard on the day in question, Jones shouted and chased Ms Davies on the school yard, with the head teacher running behind.

Jones swung her arms at the victim with clenched fists, trying to get closer to her, but the head teacher put himself between them in an attempt to stop the incident.

It happened after a man with whom the defendant had attended the location believed the complainant had said something.

Miss Davies, 44, told the Leader of her shock at what happened.

The mum-of-three said: "I turned and found her charging towards me - I was absolutely shocked and I just thought 'what is she doing?'

"I was frightened and as the head got to me, she (Chloe Jones) swung her arms around trying to punch me in the face.

"If I hadn't moved back and the head wasn't there, I think she would have punched me in the face.

"I was shaking."

The defendant received a restraining order to prevent her from approaching or contacting the victim for the next 12 months.

Miss Davies said: "I am grateful of the restraining order - it does give me peace of mind, even if just for 12 months."

She urged anyone who encounters problems with other parents at their schools to resolve their differences elsewhere - and said anyone who who experiences incidents like hers should report them immediately.

Miss Davies added: "I had just dropped my children off and they didn't see this.

"But there were other parents and children on the school yard who did see the behaviour.

"The school grounds are the last place I ever thought something like this could happen.

"It's not the place to do this at all and any incidents need to be reported.

"The school yard is supposed to be a safe place - children should not have to see this kind of behaviour.

"The head master at the school was great, he came over as soon as he saw her charging."

In addition to the restraining order, the court fined Jones £180 and ordered her to pay £620 costs, as well as a £72 victim surcharge.
