Schools and their petty rules. Punish bad behaviour, sure. Create a safe environment in which learning can take place unimpeded: we support you in this completely.

But enforcing expectations which are not even behaviour issues with strong sanctions, disproportionate to the offence? Why? What’s the point of that, except to diminish the self-esteem of youngsters trying their best?

What I want from the school management team is a focus on providing a quality education to our children: to focus on trying to recruit permanent staff, reduce the reliance on supply teachers, to help students reach their full potential.

Instead, week after week, a focus on the peripheral trifling minutiae, of no real importance or value. Parenting is hard enough as it is, without these impositions.
