Pupils smart because of school rules

SIR - After reading the feature on Kirstie Browne (WHT, March 25) I felt I had to email you with my opinion.

I have children at Onslow, and like the mother and daughter in your story, I too have signed the home school agreement and knew the rules before my children started at the school.

The rules are put in place for a reason, and having read and signed the home school agreement you would know why no jewellery is allowed.

It is my opinion that all students at Onslow look very smart in their school uniforms and the no-jewellery rule plays a big part in this.

To keep a child off school for something so trivial is irresponsible and damaging to their education, and shouldn't be allowed.

Why did Christine Wood not have the foresight to allow her daughter to get her ears pieced in the school summer holidays.
