RYDE ACADEMY ISOLATE STUDENTS FOR WEARING 'INCORRECT UNIFORM'
18-06-2014 - RYDE ACADEMY ISOLATE STUDENTS FOR WEARING 'INCORRECT UNIFORM'
Over 150 children were placed into isolation with many more sent home following an announced crackdown on the school’s uniform policy. Boys and girls from all year groups have been inspected by teachers and either sent home to change or placed into isolation conditions, which has angered parents and caused upset for pupils.
The school is requesting that anyone who has been highlighted as wearing ‘incorrect’ uniform comes to school with new skirts, trousers and shoes that meets the uniform policy, however those parents who have attempted to purchase new clothing have said that the accepted skirt length isn’t in stock at the school’s suppliers. Other stores such as Tesco are simply not stocking school clothing at this time of the year – less than 6 weeks before the Summer holidays.
Many parents simply refuse to purchase any new clothing so close to the end of the school year.
