A parent has reacted furiously, after hundreds of pupils were sent home or put into isolation, at a school in Brampton.
The pupils at William Howard School were reportedly punished because they hadn't followed new uniform rules, that had come into force over the summer:
425 kids put in isolation at William Howard School today, for violation of the uniform code.
Well I say this to teachers.
We pay your wages via taxation, and how much do actions like these cost the taxpayer in catch up lessons ect?
If you really want our kids to comply to a stringent dress code, then I think you should practice what you preach - get yourselves a uniform as well."
Parents claim hundreds of pupils at William Howard School, in Brampton, were sent home on the first day of term for breaking school uniform rules.
The rules had been imposed over the summer holidays.
My daughter was really looking forward to the new school term, and couldn't believe it when she was told she couldn't attend lessons, simply because her tights weren't dark enough.
I appreciate the school is trying to raise standards, but it seems common sense could have been used here.
Do the school really think it's a good idea for many of their pupils to be roaming the streets during the school day?"
