After 14 year old Aimee Hale was placed into isolation at Worden Academy for having her eyebrows tinted, we thought we'd take a look at the school's other rules and regulations for students.

Aimee Hale's new look was deemed “inappropriate” by school bosses, which left her mum Kerry "fuming" after learning of her daughter's punishment.

But that's not the only rule pupils can fall foul of at the Leyland school.

According to their website, Academy@Worden "promotes the core values of pride and proud and with this at the forefront it is important pupils are dressed smartly and presentable on a daily basis for school. Facial hair must be neat and look smart."

It also states that "Without exception the school will be the final arbiter regarding suitability of dress and appearance."

It goes on to provide the following guidelines for uniform:

Mobile Phones, Electronic Devices and Smart Watches

The use of all electronic devices is banned in school between the hours of 8.15am and 4.30pm and will be kept by school for 24 hours if they have been used in school.

Refusal to hand over a mobile phone, electronic devices and smart watches will result in Isolation

Isolation

If the seriousness of the incident (either inside or outside the classroom) merits it, the pupil will be sent to Isolation e.g. for physical aggression or verbal abuse to staff members or for persistent refusal to follow instructions, etc.

For incidents outside of the classroom, a pupil will be placed in Isolation via a member of SLT responsible for behaviour.

The use of Isolation is a last resort and therefore leads to formal exclusion as the next consequence.

Parents and carers of pupils in Isolation will be informed by telephone and letter.
