What The Fuck Were You Thinking?

What The Fuck Were You Thinking?Nanny has come up with a splendidly daft idea, guaranteed to further worsen the behaviour of children.

Weavers School, in Wellingborough Northamptonshire, is to allow pupils to swear at teachers.

However, the dear little munchkins can only do it up to a maximum of 5 times.

The school will keep a running tally of how many times the f-word has been used on the board.

Won't that encourage them to try to reach their quota?

If a class goes over the limit, they will be 'spoken' to by the teacher.

Ooh scary!

Seemingly the assistant headmaster, Richard White, is under the delusion that this daft idea will improve the behaviour of pupils.

What a prat!

White said that the policy was aimed at 15 and 16-year-olds in two classes, which are considered troublesome.

"Within each lesson the teacher will initially tolerate (although not condone) the use of the f-word (or derivatives) five times and these will be tallied on the board so all students can see the running score

Over this number the class will be spoken to by the teacher

Strangely enough parents think that this scheme is bollocks!

The school, which was criticised as 'not effective' by Ofsted inspectors last November, also plans to send 'praise postcards' to the parents of children who do not swear and who turn up on time for lessons.

Headmaster Alan Large, another prat, said he had received no complaints about the policy.

"The reality is that the fword is part of these young adults' everyday language.

As a temporary policy we are giving them a bit of leeway, but want them to think about the way they talk and how they might do better

Evidently Mr Large has been living on the planet Zog for the last 50 years!

    Unbelievable, if kids can't even control their language to a teacher they shouldn't be allowed in lessons, they should be suspended with their simian parents having to give up watching Trisha to look after them.

    Can you imagine the arguments though?

    "If call you a shitcock sir is that one or two swears?"


  2. I went to a "new approach" school in Kent in the 70's. If you disrupted you sat outside class. This worked well, I got 5 O levels, they got what???

  3. Only yesterday Our Beloved leader was going on at length about Respect and critising parents for not bringing their children up properly. So if a parent tells a child off for swearing at home he/she will turn round and say that he/she is allowed to do it in class so "What the **** are you on about.
