Pupils could be excluded from a Teesside school if they repeatedly forget their homework planners or stationery.

Pupils excluded over 'wrong pencil case'

A headteacher is defending her decision to potentially exclude pupils who repeatedly forget their homework planners or stationery.

Debbie Clinton says she is enforcing basic standards to prepare children for the working world.

The head of Nunthorpe School in Middlesbrough has previously excluded 65 pupils for a day because they weren't wearing the correct uniform.

Pupils could be excluded from a Teesside school if they repeatedly forget their homework planners or stationery.

It is the latest tough stance to be taken by the headteacher at Nunthorpe School in Middlesbrough, who says she is enforcing basic standards to prepare children for the working world.

Debbie Clinton is no stranger to taking a hard line. In 2009, she excluded 65 pupils for a day because they weren’t wearing the correct uniform.

Mrs Clinton says the rules are vital to raise standards.
