'Pupils who misbehave could be slapped with 'community service' punishments that involve being made to wear bright green bibs and pick up litter.
The proposed change, suggested by Kenton School in Newcastle, would see the new punishments issued to students who flout detentions.
Parents have been sent draft proposed changes to the school's behaviour policy, with one mother saying she feared it could 'humiliate' children.
The proposals state that the seven stages of the policy would start with warnings.
If pupils ignore the warnings, they will spend the rest of a lesson in a 'reflection room' before being handed a 30-minute detention that evening.
If they don't turn up, then a whole school detention would be issued - classed as a C5, but students have the option of doing 30 minutes of community service instead.
The letter adds: '(That) will be cancelled should the pupil undertake 30 minutes of community service the lunchtime of the C5 sanction day, such as litter picking or assisting in clearing the canteen.
'Pupils will wear a green hi viz bib.'
Principal Sarah Holmes-Carne said a consultation is now open to parents, students and staff and said she is 'more than happy to listen to parents' views'.
In 2014, the then Education Secretary Michael Gove said pupils should be made to do chores like litter picking under a list of government-approved punishments which also included mopping floors.'
