Mum defies West Kirby’s Hilbre High School over daughter’s nose ring ban

Jan 6 2011 By Ben Turner

A DEFIANT mum is refusing to remove her 12-year-old daughter’s nose ring which her school has banned on health and safety grounds.

Donna Tucker insists she will fight West Kirby’s Hilbre High School all the way after claiming staff have ordered her daughter Keira to remove the "late Christmas present" by Monday or she must find another school.

But Mrs Tucker, 38, is adamant the nose ring, which matches her own, will not be removed as it "is a human rights issue".

Today the school refused to be drawn on the issuing of any ultimatum.

But headteacher Jan Levenson insisted she was hoping to meet with Mrs Tucker to find an "amicable outcome" and stressed all parents had signed up to the uniform rules.

However Mrs Tucker, from Moreton, is refusing to back down claiming other pupils flout the jewellery ban.

She said: " I do not know what the big deal is, she is not turning up with drugs or a weapon and they should be more bothered about the fact she turns up and puts a lot of effort into her work.

"The nose ring was a late Christmas present and I had mine done with her. Other kids have snake bites (piercing below the lip) and a teaching assistant at the school has her nose pierced."

She added: "We will fight the school over it as it’s a human rights issue. Kids aren’t robots, my daughter’s her own person."

But Mrs Levenson said: ‘The school rules, to which every parent signs up when their child comes here, are the same as they have ever been.

"Pupils are not allowed to wear piercings in school, and are always challenged when they do so.

"That rule exists on health and safety grounds because, in a busy school where there are a lot of pupils, there is a very real risk of accidents."

She added that the student had not been sent home "as we have no wish to interrupt her education".

This is why the kids refuse to recognise rules.
We all have to do things we don't like sometimes that we don't like but sometimes appropriate clothes / behavior etc are required.

Human rights my @rse. She's a teenager, way down the food chain and should behave accordingly

It's a nose stud though.. this is all a bit pathetic. School using the health and safety crap as an excuse because the head probably doesn't want her perfect students having them..

She's 12 - not even a teenager yet.

I agree it's not a case of Human Rights it's a case of School Rules. If you don't like the rules there then find another school!

Every time i hear about nose rings my mind immediately takes me to the ring through a bulls nose, very appropriate, a ring through a humane nose is in my opinion is not at all attractive, however if a grown up wishes to have one, thats their choice, in a child, not very pleasant and body pieacing other than for ear rings should not be allowed until they are at least 16 years of age, at that age they are some way towards knowing their own mind and any possible dangers.

just trawled the internet nd there is no age restriction on nose piercings as long as they are accompanied by a parent under the age of 18.....clean and reputable estblishments wont do it to under anyone under 16.....

When I was 12 I didn't want to wear a cap or shorts (or a tie, for that matter) to School - but I had to, because those were the rules. If I got caught breaking the rules them my parents would be the first to give me a rollocking for it, never mind "fight the school" and/or call the local paper over it! Sheeesh!!

wow can,t beleive the mother, on this one. school rules are ther for the benefit and fairness of everybody, if the mother makes an exception to the rule with her daughter now, then her daughter will go through life assuming she is excempt from having to folow rules or guidelines, if she doesnt like them. Its her mothers fault for paying for this peircing as a late xmas present at the age of 12, . i have nothing against peircings at all. my thing when i was at school was i liked to dye my hair all differant colours, but when it was orange i was told i had to dye it by the headmistress, which i did.

If her daughters nose gets ripped , because the ring gets caught on say a fellow pupils item of clothing or other, will the mother exspect the school to be responsible for it. ???

personall i think just take it out, and when your 16-18 do what you like
