Schoolgirls have been warned they will be sent home if they are caught wearing skinny fit trousers or leggings.Oh, why?
One source at the Falmer Road comprehensive, said: “They wear a shirt over leggings.So, deal with those girls. How hard is that?
“But they are not thick leggings. They are like tights so you can see their pants.
“It’s not all girls, just some.”
Headteacher Haydn Stride said in a newsletter to parents that skinny fit trousers had become more of a problem since the introduction of a standard skirt last September.Splendid! Tackling the problem, rather than slapping a blanket ban on something.
He said: “If trousers are not appropriate then students may be sent home and parent/carers will need to buy alternative trousers."
But you might want to beware the problem experienced by other schools:
A school may ban girls from wearing skirts because they often look like they are 'going to a nightclub'.And will they then turn to skinny-fit trousers?
Girls at Tewkesbury School in Gloucestershire could be forced to wear trousers as part of a move to stamp out sloppy dress.
Probably, as they’ll have the same effect:
Headteacher John Reilly complains some are wearing them so short they are 'almost like belts’.Well, trousers aren’t necessarily going to be any better…
