Simon Muller was appalled when his son Liam, a year seven student at Brighton Aldridge Community Academy (BACA), told him pupils would be put in isolation if they did not wear trousers and a shirt. Last month temperatures reached up to 30 degrees Celsius in Sussex, so Mr Muller felt the need to question his son’s school.
Mr Muller, 34, said: “I get a list of items of clothing that I have to pay for out of my own money each year, and there are school P.E shorts included in it.
“If it is part of the uniform, why can’t he wear it to keep himself cool?Because it's for PE. Not for the classroom.
I could understand if they had a Nike tick on or something, but they don’t.
“I don’t want to wake up to the news one morning that a child has died because of overheating due to a stupid uniform policy.”Oh, FFS!
