As examples, the document said: "Gold rings and earrings are often viewed as an intrinsic part of Gypsy/Roma identity; Sikh pupils may be required by their religion to carry a kirpan (ceremonial knife)."
... teachers are told to be aware of the risk of certain pupils being "over disciplined" through misinterpretation of their behaviour, such as a "loud" social style.
Ah - I think they mean Chav culture where screaming at each other is the primary form of communication apart from grunting - nice to see it is recognised alongside the knife carriers and didicoys as being a valid and respected culture.
