Can schools suspend you for short haircuts or with a pattern done?

Yeah as above my school basically either sends you to a room if you have a short haircut ie below grade 2 or even if you get a line done on the hair cut.

Is this allowed?

I thought you were well past school age? Or am I mistaking you for someone else?
#2
Well I'm at 6th form
#3
yes they can....if you are working against their rules they have every right to....if you dont like the rules, move school
#4
my ten year old always gets those zig zag designs and never a problem at his school - a load of the kids are the same.

bit ott I reckon to be punished for something like that
#5
Yeah, they can. Before you joined the school there is normally something that your parents sign which is called the home/school agreement. Basically, should state that you have a place at the school and that you will abide by the rules of the school in return.
#6
Yes they can... They did it to my son! Said I had to shave his head bald to take the line out although I refused!!! His School is Catholic, they have slightly stricter rules!

Really?? Always thought you were older...

Well the old head teacher allowed it , it was only until a new head teacher came and put these rules into place. I just thought it was harsh.

+1.

I think they have rules and regulations to try and instill some discipline into kids but it clearly doesn't seem to work these days.


dont see how having a zig zag pattern in their hair shows a lack of discipline:oops:
#11

Takes me back to when my school banned middle partings. It was during the Madchester rave period. I went and got mine permed (what was i thinking?) and was called into the Assistant Rector's office where he told me i was facing suspension. That weekend i got it shaved to a number two and dyed platinum blonde. He was not a happy man. Everyone in school was frightened of him and he looked like Grame Souness.

Schools need to answer criticism all the time about the values it holds....most policies mention phrases like 'sober hair styles' to try to avoid extremes of cut and style....they are preparing people for the world of work and there too there are standards - many businesses also have dress codes and no visible tattoos/markings/piercings etc.....whether it is right or not is quite irrelevant for the schools...they are just playing their part in the process.
#14
No theyre not allowed to, same thing happened at our school but some parents complained to our local mp who gave our headmaster a kick up the bum and pointed out its within our human rights to express ourselves as we wish (including hair length/style). They also had to formally apologise to any pupils discriminated against lol.

pupils 1 school 0 :-D

It's about the environment, if you have lads and lasses on a fashion parade all day, how are they gonna learn?

Also it's about respecting your school and rules.................................god I am only 28 so much has changed :w00t:


My local high school has just got hair straighteners to encourage more girls to do PE. What is the world coming to?

I wholeheartedly agree!!

Jeez....when I was at school there were no such things as human rights for pupils.Strict adherence to school uniform(navy blue knickers included) shoes with no more than a 1" heel,no make up(which was hard to stick to in the 80's as we all wanted to look like the girls in Human League!) and no jewellery.Stand up when a teacher entered the classroom etc........I am thankful that it was thus,however,it instills basic principles such as respect and manners:thumbsup:
#24
i do know that all schools have different rules as such, but pupil confidentialitiy comes into it strongly in ours and freedom of and for the pupil and we concentrate more on other aspects ie educating them rather than what a pupil looks like as that is their own personal choice as long as it does not affect theirs or their peers school life :)

lol My PE kit consisted of black shorts and dunlop green flash trainers. We were allowed to wear grey or charcoal trousers. as part of our uniform .

We even had to walk on the left at all times with our bags at waist height. Traits i still maintain today. We had assembly every morning and we were told that whenever or wherever we were, we were always ambassadors for the school (and this was only 20 years ago)

I'd don't get why you'd want to look like a dead beat chav with stupid go faster stripes in your hair anyway.


I think it's totally fair for the school to do it. Why would you want a school of scruffs.


its however the pupil feels comfortable that way they achieve more :)

Well the old head teacher allowed it , it was only until a new head teacher came and put these rules into place. I just thought it was harsh.


This technically sets a precedent in place imo, and that any reasonable administrator would forego any new rules where no notification was given (applicable to you) and allow it for this time only until it grows back but I'd probably make you sign something to make you understand the new rules.

I'd also make sure this misunderstanding hasn't taken place anywhere else regarding students or school staff where previous head allowed certain things and new one doesn't catching everyone, off guard, unfairly.

aye but thats glasgow :lol:

when i was in primary school a boy got suspended cos he got a mohok :lol:
#29
sign something! we are not living in the fifties you know! this really does make me laugh as long as its nothing too extreme whats the problem?
you get more from a pupil who is confident and sure of themselves than trying to tell them what to do and wear it just knocks them.

AHHHHHHHHHHH this is the whole point, kids should have no choice in whether they go to school or not, let alone you making it a charlie chalk party for the poor souls:roll:


no you just dont ridicule them the way they used to do years ago and kids should have a choice regardless.
