A 12-year-old girl was sent home from school on a non-uniform day because she had forgotten to pay a £1 donation online the night before.Yes. And…?
Brenda Aciro, mother to Ternic, accused the school of bullying her child by putting her at risk of taunts from other children simply because she had forgotten to pay using the cashless online ParentPay system.Oh, ffs…
Sydney Russell School in Dagenham has defended its actions saying the event had been advertised for weeks before and the school's policy on pupils having to work separately or being sent home was clear.Well, clear to any normal person, anyway.
Sadly, the towering intellect that is Ms Aciro (Ed: Well, stands to reason..) just can’t cope with such things as consequences & parental responsibility to their spawn…
Ms Aciro, a nail technician and beauty therapist, said: 'To be told to go into isolation or be sent home because I didn't pay £1 is ridiculous.
'I just completely forgot to pay it.
'It's totally wrong because how can you punish my child in front of her class?
'That is a form of discrimination, of bullying, really.'Oh, leave off the hysterics, it seems there’s a small detail you forgot to mention to the reporter when you posed for your photos, isn’t there?
A spokesman said: 'If a child arrives in school on a non-uniform day without school uniform but without having paid their pound, parents are phoned and given the choice of their child staying in school but working apart from other pupils or going home to change.
'We followed our protocols and phoned the parent to discuss what had happened but failed to make contact so called the second named contact supplied to us by the parent.
'The second contact agreed it was okay to send the child home to get changed.
'The rules are fair and we will always try our best to work closely with parents and pupils.'So, if you’re upset she was sent home, speak to your contact.
If you’re upset she was ‘humiliated’ in front of her class, then have a word with yourself, because you are (supposedly) the adult.
You’ll find that having a tantrum in the local newspaper gets you about as far as it’d get your daughter…
