PLANS to introduce a uniform headscarf at a Burnley school have been abandoned.
Last term bosses at Sir John Thursby Community College announced a uniform covering after concerns were raised that headscarves were not being worn correctly.
But hundreds of people signed a petition protesting against the move saying the new headscarves were uncomfortable, not sufficiently modest and breached health and safety.
…. “We are pleased to support those young people who have made the choice to wear a headscarf for religious reasons, and who do so in a manner which ensures their safety, whilst meeting the college uniform requirements.”
Rules require headscarves to be black without tassels or adornments, worn without pins and so that ties are clearly displayed.
Dr Davies added: “As with any other breach of college uniform, parents will be informed of their child’s failure to comply with uniform rules on a regular basis.

[NEXT] We are pleased to support those young people who have made the choice to wear a headscarf for religious reasons,

[NEXT] yet again we bend over backwards for these people if you dont like the rules in this country then leave.
[NEXT] So that opens the door to the pupils wearing trainers and tracksuits. Or will they be discriminated against. They can just say its in the book of fairy-tales according to chav. [Lancashire Telegraph] Read more
