His spiky new haircut left Connor Madden looking literally too cool for school. The trendy redhead was ordered straight back to the barbers after teachers branded his striking new do too “extreme”.Or what..? They’d call her and her husband in and give them lines? Little Connor isn’t the only troublemaker in the family though:
A letter was sent to the seven-year-old’s mum warning her that she had until the end of the school holidays to “reconsider” Connor’s look.
Connor’s sister Amie’s haircut has also proved a shortcut to trouble. The 10-year-old has a dash of highlighted hair in her fringe .What’s the policy on, say, teaching kids to read and write, Dr Crinson? Because I think that’s what we pay you for, not to recreate ‘Extreme Makeover: Kiddie Edition’ during the school term.
But the letter sent in the name of headteacher Dr James Crinson adds: “You may also need to reconsider Amie’s blonde streak in her hair. As you know, we have a policy of not allowing extreme haircuts.”
Now, an investigation has been launched after the parents put in an official complaint to the local education authority.You want to see a resolution? Sack Dr Crinson. The man’s an idiot with too much time on his hands if this is the sort of thing he spends his time doing.
A spokesman for North Tyneside Council said: “We are aware of this issue and are supporting the family to see a resolution.”
