Headteacher Bans Parents From Wearing Pyjamas When Dropping Children Off

A school has banned parents from wearing pyjamas when dropping their children off.

The headteacher of Ayresome Primary School in Middlesbrough told parents it is 'inappropriate' to wear bedclothes such as slippers and dressing gowns at the school gates.

In a post to Facebook, Charlotte Haylock urged parents and guardians to "wear appropriate clothing when accompanying their children to and from school".

She wrote: "As a school, we encourage our children to be appropriately dressed at all times and we feel it is important for parents to do likewise."

Some parents welcomed the 'polite notice', saying they had had enough of it.

Speaking to the Metro, one dad, who preferred not to be named, said he was "disgusted" by parents who don't bother to get themselves dressed properly in the morning.

He said: "I'm absolutely sick of it. It's not hard to get dressed in the morning.

"Imagine how much those kids are going to be ridiculed when they get into school.

"They don't even put on a fresh pair to come and collect them. A lot of the parents are disgusted by it."

Aimee Baker's 17-year-old son previously attended the school and said issues surrounding parents' clothing had been going on too long.

"They're taking the kids to school in their pyjamas and coming back in the same ones," she said.

"It's embarrassing for the children. There's no excuse you should get washed and dressed every morning."

Others, however, weren't as supportive.

Writing on social media, another parent said: "If people wanna wear the pjs to take their kids then they can, as long the kids getting to school that's what counts."

But school bosses have offered their full backing to Ms Haylock.

The CEO for the school's Ad Astra Academy Trust, Andy Brown, said: "A number of parents and teachers have also expressed concern about some parents wearing nightwear at the school and I wholeheartedly support the stance taken by the headteacher."

Elsewhere, pupils at a school in London have been banned from using slang words such as 'like' and 'bare' in their work.

Staff at Ark All Saints Academy in London have drawn up a list of terms that students are no longer allowed to use in formal learning situations and exams.

Students will, however, be allowed to continue using them on the playground.
