    Sons school scrapping blazers and ties 9th Nov 18 at 5:14 PM
    Sons school getting new uniform

    Hi my 11 year old son year 7 school resently held a uniform consultation regarding a new uniform. The choices were to keep the current blazer and tie uniform or get a more Modern jumper and polo shirt style uniform.

    There was a vote a couple of weeks ago and the results were announced on Monday. 94% of students voted for the new uniform and 74%of parents voted for the new uniform and 83% of teachers / staff also voted for the new uniform.

    The school have reviled that students can wear the new uniform from November the 19th but itís not compulsory until next September itís available to buy from next Thursday.

    Sons schools new uniform policy
    School jumper with school logo
    School polo shirt with school logo
    Black school trousers
    Plain black unbranded lace up plimsolls or proper leather school shoes only No vans converse trainers boots or heels

    My son actually got chosen along side another pupil yesterday and today to model the new uniform and have photos taken in it. The school got my son and the other pupil to wear plain black lace plimsolls as there allowed / recommended with the new uniform.

    Do you think other schools will follow suit and get rid of blazer style uniforms ???

    I would like to throttle the person who invented the tie and a tie would be a good place to start unless they had the policeman's version which pulls straight off.
    I spent most of my working life wearing a suit and tie to work until the day I joined the Civic Service. The first day I turned up in a suit and tie only to find everyone else in open necked shirts, jeans and even shorts when it was hot.
    I have not worn a tie since.

    Oh, you've moved from the marriages board.

    OP, you need help. Speak to your GP, they'll be able to make appropriate referrals.

    Everyone else- this is a regular poster who has several unhealthy obsessions related to children, please don't engage.
    Unless I say otherwise 'you' means the general you not you specifically.

    What makes you say that? The Op has 5 posts none of which are on the marriages board. Are you saying they previously posted under another user name?

    Any mention of school uniform from a new poster in this context automatically triggers alarm bells.
    If the OP is genuine they have been caught up in this.
    I have to be honest, my first thought was that it was the strange poster back again.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    It's exactly as Elsien has said. The style of writing is the same as numerous previous odd posts, always by a new poster. Also, I have never heard of ANY secondary school that encourages pupils to wear plimsolls, yet this is almost always a factor mentioned in these threads. Schools do not encourage plimsolls for regular wear because they are not smart, they do not support growing feet, and they do not protect feet from the British weather. Also, it is virtually impossible to buy plimsolls for teenagers - they have adult sized feet!

    The same poster pops up every few months with variations on the theme. She just uses different usernames. Funnily enough, her son is almost always 11 years old. This, combined with her obsession with plimsolls, school uniform, school toilets, and fake Ugg boots, makes it very concerning at times.

    Personally I couldn't be bothered going to the trouble to continue making new accounts to blether on about the same topics time and again.
