John Simkin Posted June 22, 2005 Share Posted June 22, 2005 From next year all pupils at the Broadstone Middle School in Poole, Dorset will have to wear long trousers. Headteacher Marilyn Warden said the decision had been made: “in order to give girls the same opportunities as boys for a safe, active and healthy lifestyle, while maintaining their modesty.” Last year Kesgrave High School in Ipswich banned skirts. Headteacher George Thomas claims the decision has been a big success: “We no longer have teachers spending their time trying to stop girls wearing skirts halfway up their back.” What do members think? Would you be in favour of a ban on skirts in your school? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
