Blackheath Bluecoats School to close?

From 853blog today:

Failing Blackheath Bluecoat School Faces Closure

I know next to nothing about schools in this area, I’m ashamed to say. Being just the wrong age – no kids yet, and too old to have have gone to school around here, I try to avoid writing about subjects I have no experience of (hence the endless posts about wandering down the high street).

Bluecoats is highly visible on Twitter, and I’d be interested to know your thoughts on this. It’s always sad when a school has problems.

Playground bullying

From kites to something less delightful. As I trawl the internet looking for bits of Blackheath, I came across two new clips added to Youtube. In this wonderful new high tech world that we live in, school children don’t just get into fights in the playground, they upload the fights onto youtube afterwards.

This really reminds me of the worst bits of being at school – the sense of being in a cross between a zoo and a prison, and feeling a bit queasy on a Sunday evening. Being an adult is great in comparison, I think.

If anyone knows Liam, Dimas, Kemnal, or whatever they’re called, maybe have a word with their teacher, and get them put in detention or something.

Anyway, here are the two videos in all their miserable glory. Lots of playground language if you know what I mean. Video 1 and Video 2

If you’re having trouble at school with bullying, then tell an adult that you trust.
