A primary school receptionist whose five-year-old daughter was scolded by a teacher for talking about God is facing the sack after seeking support from members of her church.
Jennie Cain, who works part-time at her daughter Jasmine’s school, sent an e-mail to close friends asking them to pray for her child.
Jasmine was left in tears after she was reprimanded by a teacher for discussing heaven and God with a friend.

But Mrs Cain’s e-mail fell into the hands of the school’s headmaster, Gary Read.
The mother-of-two is now being investigated for professional misconduct for allegedly making claims against the school and staff members.
She has been told she may be disciplined and was warned she could face dismissal from Landscore Primary School, in Crediton, Devon.
It is the latest example of a Christian facing a misconduct hearing where they work for practising their faith.
