A school in Northampton that enforced strict uniform rules to avoid the sexualisation of children angered pupils and parents when it banned skirts as girls were wearing them above the knee.
It’s now caused further annoyance as the headmaster has now banned skinny fit trousers as well.
Well, I’m sorry girls, but if these two in the article are anything to go by, then they’re taking the proverbial p*ss and the headmaster has a point.
Are those supposed to be school trousers?! They look more like leggings.
They’re not exactly school uniform material, are they?!
What’s so wrong with school uniform anyway? It’s a way of making sure all pupils are wearing the same clothes.
There’s no singling out of children who have so called better clothes than others, or thinking of what to put on every morning.
Everyone’s the same.
It also identifies the school, and the pupils in it.
You’re hardly representing the school, are you if you’re hoiking your skirt up to your hoo ha or wearing trousers that look like they’ve been shrunk in the wash.
Just suck it up and accept that while you’re at school, you’ve got a uniform and rules.
Why get in a twist over not being able to wear certain clothes? It’s the rules, get over it. Respect them and sweat the big things. :-)
If mine came home complaining about the uniform they had to wear I’d be telling them exactly the same thing – respect the rules…. get on with it and stop moaning… and wouldn’t be encouraging them to take the widdle and then run crying to the press.
What do you think?!
