Teachers were told to give the female pupil access to sterilised Bic safety razor blades and to escort her to a bathroom where she could cut herself.

They were ordered to wait outside the bathroom while the child was inside, checking on her every two minutes, before the wounds were dressed and cleaned by staff.

The policy is understood to have been designed by the school in collaboration with the pupil’s mother.

And from the BBC:

A school's decision to ban triangular flapjacks after a pupil was hurt has been labelled "half-baked" by critics.

It follows an incident at Castle View School in Canvey Island, Essex, when a boy was hit in the face by a flapjack.

Catering staff at the school have been told only to serve square or rectangular flapjacks.

:1:

Surely a square (with four corners) is more dangerous than a triangle (with three corners).

:69:

Now had they implemented a circle only policy I could understand that. :57:

Oh I watched that. Amazing. Triangle has three corners. They obviously didn't work out that a square has six (!!!!!!)

Ok, ok, five.

Yea, squares only have 5 these days....the teachers complained there were too many so the exam board downgraded them.

This would be funny if it wasn't so sad ( meant in the old fashioned way) I am not sure who is more fcuked up. The teachers or the Mother! They certainly need a psych too
