I’M all for much stricter discipline in schools, but punishing pupils for going to the toilet is a bit harsh.
Being able to relieve oneself is surely a basic human right. When you gotta go, you gotta go.
I have a bladder weaker than England’s Euro 2012 squad, so I have sympathy with the girl from Outwood Academy Valley who was disciplined for going to the toilet between lessons.
If the school don’t want the kids going to the bogs, then maybe they should provide all pupils with Outwood Academy branded colostomy bags. Just a thought.
