@itvlondon yes it should be banned as none of them can spell or speak properly. I spend all day correcting kids who say arks instead of ask!
Sylvia Ackfield It's about time they were taught to speak proper English in schools.
Paul Olaitan It's always wonderful watching old people feeling challenged and insecure in the face of youthful innovation lol.
Cassie Clark Not just schools though is it? It is something that should be implemented at home as well.
Here are some of your views on banning slang words in school. Join the debate by tweeting us your comments @itvlondon.
@itvlondon ridiculous! Kids are kids. Never been any different. Remember The Fonz? 'Wicked'? What rubbish this is. Kids grow up - we did!
@itvlondon my daughter uses all those words at times. But can so slay anybody with her diction. So clearly banning is not the answer.
@itvlondon definitely the right decision. Using words like that will not help in the work place so stop them while they are young.
Doug Carrington About time too. All schools should follow suit. There is nothing wrong with teaching children in Britain to speak the English language, after all it is spoken by people all around the globe and much better than many Britons can.
@itvlondon Yes. Equipping students with language skills can only be lauded. You can only rebel against the rules when you know what they are
Unstable Dave Basically, that's like bare badness like, coz we chat extra kool innit.
Speaking to ITV News, the Harris Academy in south London said it opened last month, replacing a secondary school that was in 'special measures', and had long been failing.
– Harris Academy STATEMENT
In addition to giving students the teaching they need to thrive academically, we want them to develop the soft skills they will need to compete for jobs and university places.
"This particular initiative is just one of the many ways in which we are building the vocabulary of our students and giving them the skills they need to express themselves confidently and appropriately for a variety of audiences.
A school in south London has banned common slang words in an attempt to improve standards of English. The Harris Academy Upper Norwood has put up signs around the building reminding pupils of the words it wants them to stop using.
