The Express & Star is reporting that a mother is furious after her son was put in isolation for not wearing his blazer to a Wolverhampton school on the hottest day of the year so far…
Clare Falconer’s 12-year-old son Chrissy was given a dressing down by teachers at Aldersley High School when he turned up blazer-less on Wednesday – when temperatures reached 32C.
His mother’s fury reached boiling point when she went to the school to speak to staff – and was greeted by an assistant head teacher decked out in shorts and a t-shirt.
However, the Codsall school’s vice principal said the pupils did not have to wear the blazers during class time or break times this week due to the heat…
Vice principal Nicola Bayliss said: “Students had been asked to bring their distinctive purple blazers into school, but they have not been asked to wear them during classes and break time.
“We are very proud of our uniform and students take great pride in wearing it to show they belong to the Aldersley High community.
“As our new Year 7 students are in school this week in preparation for their September start, we wanted them to see our uniform standards…”
Did your/your child’s school relax uniform regulations in the heat last week?
What do you think of the way things have been handled at this school?
