‘Military camp’ school gives girl two-hour detention and she has no idea why

A student at a strict school compared to that of a "military camp" was slapped with a two-hour detention, with the dad and schoolgirl both baffled why she received it.

Adam Taylor, 36, had slammed school rules put in place last year that led to a detention for daughter Caitlin, 14, at St Peter's Academy in Fenton, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire.

The 14-year-old was handed the hefty detention for allegedly breaking school regulations after she failed to fill out the "correction" system form last year, instead receiving an immediate two-hour detention.

Instead of filling out the form that asked her which "values" of the school she had not shown, Caitlin wrote: "Didn't do nothing so can't see why I'm here tbh (to be honest)."

That lack of reflection appears to have landed Caitlin in hot water, and her father is furious at the school rules, which he believes have gone "far too far".

A 30-minute correction is handed out to pupils who are in breach of one of the six school rules that were implemented last September.

Those breaches can be over behaviour, punctuality, correct uniform, inappropriate language, answering back and making sure they have their student planner.

Caitlin had received four breaches for uniform misdemeanours, with Adam receiving a text from the school at 1:46pm on Friday, September 10 2021, reading: "Caitlin has received four corrections today so we have a two-hour correction after school. Finish time 5pm."

Adam, a window cleaner, said: "It’s more like a military camp. I got a text message an hour before school finished informing me that she had got a detention. One of the corrections was for a wrong PE top which is my fault.

"These new rules just started on the Monday when they went back to school. My daughter was there until 5pm. In a few months time at 5pm it’s going to be pitch black walking home.

"I know where the school is coming from – you have got to discipline kids. But if someone is two minutes late to school then they get one of these 30-minute corrections. If they speak in a lesson they get a correction.

"They can get four or five of them throughout the day. I just think it’s going too far. They have to sit in the hall, be quiet, or fill in one of these daft correction forms."

St Peter's Academy refused to comment on the issue at the time.
