She said: “We wish a pupils to be essay for value in all they do.
“While giving them an preparation we also wish to be scheming them for a workplace and a outward world.
“We wish pupils to be presenting themselves good to their destiny employers and wearing a scold uniform is a approach they can work towards this.”
Ms Denholm says no changes have been done to a uniform, though letters were sent out during a finish of a final propagandize year surveying what’s approaching of pupils.
Trousers contingency be black and tailored with during slightest a 14cm light and contingency not adhere to a leg.
While skirts contingency be pleated and knee length, no micro or mini skirts are allowed.
She said: “We would never change a uniform policy, not though a consultation.
“I only wanted to tie adult expectancy of a uniform.
“We are wakeful that any family has opposite resources so we purposefully went out and bought new uniform for those children who competence not be means to accommodate a expectations.”
Ms Denholm pronounced that some children were placed in siege on Wednesday, if their uniform wasn’t correct.
She said: “Why should a children who are entrance to propagandize rightly dressed see others, who aren’t, still walking around it’s not fair.
