It would help if rags like the Mail didn't home in on stories like this and make a fuss about nothing for the sake of a cheap headline.

It would help if gullible people didn't read that rag in the first place, and get carried away with imposed indignation.

It would help if over protective parents didn't show off for their moment of fame.

Executive Principal Emma Hadley said: ‘Our pupils are ambassadors for the academy and we expect them to represent us in the correct manner. ‘We want our pupils to present themselves smartly as we believe that the self-discipline this requires is an important lesson to learn as pupils will find that there is often a dress code in most places of work. ‘We provide very clear guidance to parents in our prospectus.’

It would also help if snotty nosed School Managers didn't hide behind Victorian rules in the 21C.

In other words, grow up the lot of you.

Welcome to sunny 21st Century Britain. Wrong people in the right places, right people in the wrong places.

Now that is a point of view I can't entirely disagree with.

No thanks. I'd much prefer Martial Law being declared with myself as GOC UKLF.

Can guarantee within 90 days that I will follow Typhoo as they put the T in Britain, I'll put the Great in it!

What a sad reflection of those within the UK's local political parties, no wonder our educational system is up the creek without a paddle.

Parents and Education? It would help if schools did the job they're supposed to do, this is just plain bureaucracy running rampant....

Speaking as a ginger, she isn't. That's clearly synthetic red.

The only Redcoats I'm aware of are those from history....

More bureaucratic B/S

There's a better option: -

How about licensing Snivel Serpents every three years. Those that do their job, get promoted/performance bonuses. Those that don't get points on their license. 3 points in three years = dismissal.

Pretty sure that we would soon have a civil service that actually works without any bumbling fool coming up with lame-brained ideas.

OK that is enough. This thread is about education and a parents role in that, and relevant peripheral matters. It is NOT a vehicle for backdoor jibes at Civil Servants from people with their own agenda. If proven necessary I will ask for this thread to be closed.

It is highly relevant! Getting teachers licensed? WTH did they do all that training for? Teachers are involved in education ARE THEY NOT?
