A petition started by a fourth year pupil has had thousands of signatures
Pupils have started a petition calling for their human rights to be respected after their school began locking toilets during class time.
Children returned to Williamwood High School, East Renfrewshire, for the new school term on Wednesday to discover the “awful” new rule had been put in place to curb “inappropriate behaviour”.
But 15-year-old Mia Benjamin said the move was having a particular impact on students with periods, who have additional needs or who live some distance from the campus.
She told STV News: “It’s not fair to punish a whole school for a few individual actions.”
