Mum furious after Nottingham schoolgirl punished for ‘showing too much ankle’

Lea Scott, whose daughter Paige Bradwell is in Year 10 at Rushcliffe School in West Bridgford, has claimed the incident arose over the school’s uniform policy. Speaking to the Nottingham Post the mother said that her daughter had been withdrawn from lessons by teachers at the school. Ms Scott who lives in Edwalton in Nottinghamshire has said that her daughter Paige has been regularly told off because her trousers are too short.

“I just don’t know what to do anymore. It’s an ongoing battle.

“They’ve really come down on it in the last few months.

“I think she was showing a centimetre and a half of ankle.

“That’s how pedantic they are being.

“She’s being taken out of lessons and put in isolation rooms for the whole day.

“I think it’s appalling.”

The  Rushcliffe School have been approached for comment.

Schoolgirl spots glaring blunder in maths homework and responds with brutal reply

The response was shared on Reddit and has subsequently been shared widely across the internet. Myrah was asked to write an equation for six scenarios, a post on Reddit shared. “Jane has 12 crayons and Kim has 7 crayons. How many more crayons does Susan have than Kim?” the girl – known only as Myrah – was asked as part of her homework assignment.

Her response has been praised as legendary.

“Who’s Susan?” she asked.

“Myrah is going places,” one Redditor wrote cheekily, while a second praised Myrah over her no nonsense response.

Another had a different theory, saying: “‘Maybe it’s a reading comprehension test disguised as a math test.”

And Redditors spotted mistakes in the other questions too.

The first question asked: “There are 8 birds on a branch. There are 3 birds on another branch. How many birds are there in the tree?”

And she correctly replied: “8 + 3 = 11.”

But one Reddit user asked: “Also #1. How do we know those 2 branches are part of the same tree?”

“There are 8 fish in the post. 7 fish swam away. How many are left in the pond?” another question (question 3) asked.

Another Reddit user said: “I’ve got a problem with #3 too. Even if fish swim away in a pond… they’re still in the pond.”
