Student excluded from Spalding Grammar School after 'silent protest' over controversial bags policy
An A-Level student was excluded from Spalding Grammar for two days because he refused to hand over his mobile phone after a "silent protest" over the school'scontroversial ban on large bags.
Jacob Ford (17), of Holbeach, served a two-day exclusion for refusing to hand over the phone, which he used to keep his family informed of his treatment by staff at the Priory Road school.
The student, who was excluded by headmaster Steven Wilkinson on Friday, had previously written a 3,300-word "document of defence" stating his view that the school's ban on large bags, for health and safety reasons, was a "ridiculous rule change".
