Interesting online debates percolating about the Great Yarmouth Charter School and its new Head Barry Smith’s strict rules and regulations.
Trenchant questioning is being sustained by Warwick Mansell @warwickmansell. This is a large, serious debate, but considering the stringency of the rules presented by the school for this new year of operation, I was struck by the laxity – and consequent comic line – in the lack of an accurate use of the apostrophe for Rule No 4 about chewing gum [checked against various newspaper reportings of it, including the natural ally MailOnline]:
4. No chewing gum on site. If found with chewing gum pupils will be placed in isolation. Your children will avoid detentions, isolations, or confiscations if you are a supportive parent.
