The function of schools is to educate its pupils and prepare them for live beyond education. If they are going to earn a living and make a contribution to the society in which they live they will be surprised to find that it often means complying with terms and conditions with which they may not necessarily agree but which they have to swallow in order to earn a...

And racism inquiry wants BAME to be dropped as a term. Blimey, thought it had just got widespread usage.

Emmie: Yes, had to smile when they said it homogenized non-white people. So what does calling people white mean then?
All students should have the right to wear what they like. It's nothing to do with education. Or racism. Maybe schools should stop judging clothing, and concentrate on teaching.

No, Pixie. They should wear school uniforms. It's a great leveler.
How? People aren't "level". They are all individuals. If schools stop focusing on appearance- that would be a good lesson for all the students.
surely its up to the school on policy, of uniforms for all pupils. If they ban coloured hijabs and those with Afro Hair, you have to read the piece, then maybe the children have a point.
I think their concerns about the uniform policy are quite valid but I cannot understand why they object to the Union flag or burned it in September... that part would seem to harm their cause.
I agree emmie
It depends what the school wants to teach. Having got to a point where physical appearance isn't all important and we accept differences... it seems odd that schools are still stuck in the past. Why not teach that behaviour, discipline, kindness... matters more than what you look like?
The Union flag is fine at a British school.

This plethora of black/BAME/BLM news risks sending us back into the 1970s when the National Front were marching down main streets. We really should be concerned about a yobbish backlash. Watching a young black chap on the news now bemoaning his school's uniform guidance. Policy should be made by the school and the parent governors under the lawnot by pupils.
The controversy is not over whether or not to wear uniforms it is about specific restrictions which at this particular school do seem to affect pupils with afros (majority of whom if not all will be black) and people who wear hijabs.

What’s wrong with a colourful hijab anyway? What a pointless rule. The admin seem to have shot themselves in the foot there.
i agree about the school uniform, its compulsory in many schools. Why try and buck the system.
You don’t believe in the right to strike paigntonian?
In private schools- they can choose what they like and anyone paying will agree. In "public" (state, in the real sense of the word), they have no right to tell people what they should look like..or encourage children to judge on clothing.
perlease, these people always want special treatment.

Maybe some the responders here would like the young people to set the syllabus as well? How's about school attendance, disciplinary procedures, access to the internet at school, hiring and firing of teachers...
It’s an academy
that is correct untitled, though personally i don't like the hijab, niqab, burkha i find them outdated in this day and age, but its not my call to make.
