Cops called to school as mob of furious parents confront teachers who suspended dozens of kids over wrong uniforms


COPS were called to a high school after around 40 children were suspended for wearing the wrong uniform.

A mob of furious parents confronted teachers at Blyth Academy high school in Northumberland yesterday after their kids were sent home for breaching the school’s uniform policy.

Teachers “screamed and shouted” at pupils and reduced them to tears on Wednesday, according to one parent.

Barry Baker told Chronicle Live that he refused to send his daughter, 15-year-old Brylee Long, to school following the row and said he had seen children leaving the school in tears.

He said: “It is absolutely appalling.

“It is a massive shambles that they’ve turned the school into an army camp. All the parents are very concerned about what is going on.”

Northumbria Police said officers were called to the school at around 10am on Thursday morning.

The Northern Education Trust refused to apologise for their “high standards” and said that parents had been sent a letter during the summer holidays setting out uniform requirements, and the children had been told during an assembly in school on Wednesday.

A spokesman said: “Attainment in 2017 was inadequate with only 32% of the students passing both English and maths. Given the starting points of our children we would expect well in excess of 60 per cent to do so.

“A significant barrier to learning is the low level disruption in lessons and around the academy which are blighting the educational experience of too many of our children who deserve better.

“We are committed to putting new systems into place with much higher expectations that will dramatically improve the provision for our children at Blyth Academy.”

The school’s website states: “Students not in full Academy uniform will not be permitted to attend mainstream lessons.

“Parents/Carers will be asked to give assurance that their child will comply with the Academy’s rules and regulations.”
