Pride and Respect

TOO right schools should crack down on jewellery and make-up.

Pride and respect and a bit of old school value goes a long way.

TOO right schools should crack down on jewellery and make-up.

Pride and respect and a bit of old school value goes a long way.

Pupils are ambassadors for their community and each other while at school whether they like it or not and it is the schools responsibility, with the support of the parents and carers to keep the pupils on their toes as far as personal pride and appearance is concerned while they are under the schools provision and while they are wearing the school uniform. They are still “children” not adults.

School uniform doesn’t have to be frumpy old and fogey, you can still have a sense of being individual in other ways and to say that Angela Coombes knows of other schools that would allow her daughter to wear the piercing is totally ridiculous. I know that Cromwell School strictly imposes its uniform policy and sends regular letters and emails to parents reminding them throughout the seasons about what is acceptable and what is not.

As for the school being “worse than prison” that’s LAUGHABLE. What is she teaching her daughter? Would she be as ‘up in arms’ about the whole thing if her daughter had been sacked from paid employment.
