Should schools send pupils home for wearing the wrong uniform?

Yesterday I was asked to write a short piece (400 words) contributing to the debate about whether Matthew Tate, the headteacher of Hartsdown Academy in Margate, was right to send pupils home for failing to adhere to the school’s strict uniform policy.

My thoughts are now online, along with those of Mary Cooper (Mary Wombat), a retired teacher who blogs as Little Mavis. As the word limit was so restrictive, there is much that I wish to add to this, which I’ll do in another blog post. I imagine that Mary probably has more to say too!
