Police called after crowds of children turned away from Hartsdown Academy

Police had to be called to Hartsdown Academy after over fifty children we turned away on the first day. The crowds of displaced children were left milling around outside the school which disrupted traffic and caused significant other problems.

According to Kent Online the police were called after furious parents protested because their children had been sent home from school because of problems with their uniform.

Headteacher Matthew Tate said parents had been warned this would happen by letter in July but parents suggested that he grossly over-reacted and enforced the rules like a gestapo.

Concerns were raised that the school failed to protect the children by not ensuring that they had somewhere safe to go. According to the Mirror, one girl asked a stranger for a lift home when she could not contact her parents. Other reports suggested that many of the children simply headed into town to hang around near the shops.

Online, kentlive.news says there were 60 students turned away. They continue, the school started its new term this morning (September 6) with staggered timings for different years – however to the shock of many parents, teachers were standing by the gate checking uniforms.

Several reports indicated that the school would prefer the children to be in pain rather than break the dress code. Apparently, one girl was made to remove her socks because they were the wrong colour and very shortly her new shoes had left the backs of her heels bleeding. Another child had a medical exception after a painful operation and, on doctor's advice, needed to wear trainers but this was unacceptable too.

Hartsdown Academy, a mixed non-selective school with 900 pupils, is part of the Coastal Academies Trust. According to one parent, there is not an official uniform and they have only an inexact set of guidelines to go by. This blogger cannot help but wonder if the heads of Hartsdown Academy might not have been better advised to first clarify school uniform requirements and issue better guidelines.

There was also coverage from The Sun. However, The Sun turned 5.5% into "half the school" with their headline. So I stopped reading.

Things have really picked up since you came back to writing, Matt. This story was a bloody disgrace but I can't say that I am surprised.

Penis Enlargement Bible Benefit

Penis Enlargement Bible Review &#8211; Does It Really Work?
There are many ways of improving penis size and with so many men looking for this advantage, it is no wonder. Some of the options are not at all healthy for men to use on themselves and it is actually a much better idea to look for other similar types of products.
Of course, using a guide that utilizes natural methods is another great method to use. There are a few options, but the Penis Enlargement Bible has gotten a lot of attention recently. We decided to check out the different aspects in order to find out whether it was worthwhile for people to purchase.
Benefits of the Penis Enlargement Bible
There are plenty of benefits of the PE Bible that are far better than most of the other opportunities. Surgeries are just plain painful and can be a big hassle in both time and in money. For a temporary solution or one that is unnatural, it is not at all worth it. However, for penis extenders and penis pills, it is a lot easier for people to get the extended penis they are looking for. Unfortunately, this can also be dangerous and it is a temporary solution.
Increasing the musculature of your physiology is the only way to improve the size of your erections and improve the length before ejaculation. For a lot of men, the program offers natural methods that can help them in order to improve these aspects of their life.
The methods do work, but it seems as though they are hard to understand and get the hang of. Learning from the PE Bible is not easy and it is not at all quick even though the material seems to be useful for an improved penis size. Most of the time, it is hard to even understand what the guide is trying to say.
Which Penis Enlargement Product?
For some men, the Penis Enlargement Bible was a real disappointment. Even though many of the right exercises were there, the way that it was presented made it nearly impossible to learn properly at a pace that suited most individuals. Spending a few minutes each day is the best option for most of the men who want to improve the size of their penis, but it is not at all fair to make them spend hours on exercises .
