|School poster controversy makes it into national press|
|Saturday, 03 December 2016 16:40|
Updated: Reports of a controversy over a “challenging” poster, that appears to suggest unprepared students could end up alone, depressed or worse, but which it’s claimed is intended to spark discussion and debate, have made it into the national press.
Bitterne Park School have said that a “Consequences/Lost Pen” poster “has not been available for several months”, and has “never been distributed around the whole school at any point and was displayed in a controlled environment” where there is challenging information on other topics for discussion.
The school said in a statement that the image, which isn’t a “Bitterne Park produced message” has been shared online by what it describes as “trolls” to an audience “who may not be supported if upset by this”.
Update 6/12/16: the school has now made a further statement on their website about the poster.
