Sheffield news Mum blasts school's blazer policy after child left 'dripping in sweat' PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - The mum claims children at the high school were not allowed to take off their blazer for most of the day
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A mum has blasted a school's "outrageous" blazer policy after her daughter came back home "dripping in sweat" and "feeling ill". The woman, who did not wish to be named, said children at Sale High School in Trafford, were not not allowed to take their blazer off for most of the day despite the sweltering heat. Her child said only a handful of teachers permitted pupils to remove them in class with others quoting the school policy as their reason for not allowing it. "As a health worker myself I think it's disappointing that schools aren't taking the children's health seriously," the mum told the Manchester Evening News. "I think it's outrageous that children across the UK are having to wear blazers in schools with temperatures expected to reach highs of 27 degrees.

I understand the school policy and I agree uniform is uniform, but for the children's safety there's ways of going around this." She added: "I feel if UK weather reaches higher then 25 degrees and no aircon is provided, I think blazers should be optional. I also feel small changes like PE kit would be a lot better and cooler. To learn even the teachers are wearing summer clothes while children are sat in blazers and some in trousers as well for six hours plus is beyond outrageous." The mum, along with other parents, challenged the school on its policy and on Thursday, she said pupils were finally allowed to take off their blazers. She now wants Sale High to drop the policy altogether to protect children's health and to avoid similar scenarios in the future.

. "Yet if you pulled your child out you would be fined. I strongly believe the health education should put this into consideration, not just for high schools, but for primaries and nurseries as well. "They have finally agreed that blazers can be taken off, however I feel this shouldn't just be a one-off, it should be a set policy across all school settings. If temperature get above 25 degrees, students shouldn't have to ask to take a blazer off if they're too hot, this should be a child's personal opinion and own judgement - a child shouldn't be forced to wear a blazer or risk detection or being told off. "I agree in the UK we don't have heat like this regularly, but when we do it can hit high heats. This is something that needs addressing and brought to attention in all education sectors." On Sale High's policy it states parents are expected to buy Navy school blazer with a Sale High School badge (compulsory item to be worn at all time). "We believe the wearing of uniform helps to create a sense of community and equality amongst students, whilst establishing school as a working environment," says the policy. "In a large school it is also of considerable benefit for security reasons that students should wear uniform. A uniform removes the distraction which may be caused by an individual’s style of dress and allow students to concentrate on learning." The Manchester Evening News has approached the school for comment.
