… parents at the school in Sigdon Road have complained that the way the uniform policy is now being enforced is stressing out their children, some of whom have even been sent home for not meeting the required standards they claim.Oh noes! Expecting children to abide by the rules! Calamity! The End Times are surely upon us!
Natalie Anderson, who claims her son is now afraid to go to school, says children are being penalised for their parents’ errors.Well, don't make any then. You're the adult, aren't you?
“There are six teachers lined up along the gates inspecting uniform, including socks and they are lifting uniforms to identify if they’re correct, the tactics are similar to policing,” she said.No they aren't. The police are too enlightened (or frightened) to do that sort of thing.
“The tactics are misplaced in a primary school where children are still learning and adapting, they would be better suited to youths who need that kind of discipline and can take responsibility for themselves.”I think the school is endeavouring to make sure that the little darlings start out right and don't grow up into those sort of youths...
She continued: “Six year olds don’t want to worry if their uniforms are ironed or if it’s the right colour or if their socks are black or if they have two tones on their shoes.
“They’re trying to achieve something but they’re going about it in the wrong way and they are making people angry.”And we wouldn't like you when you're angry?
