The current fashion amongst Priory girls for ultra-short skirts clearly demonstrates sloppy (& soppy) discipline on the part of the school and poor care by parents. You can't blame young girls for pushing the fashion boundaries, but to allow them to go to and from school looking like the cast of St Trinians is disgraceful. I rarely see such extremes of dress amongst pupils of Chailey or Ringmer, and the various Brighton schools also seem able to enforce a sensible dress code. Priory staff should be ashamed of themselves. And another thing, why stop when one is on a good rant, why do all Priory boys wander about with their shirts hanging out, and why do they never wear coats in the rain?

@Parentandgrandparent : Ah yes, of course, it's the staff's fault. Yeah, right.

Unfortunately the staff cannot be responsible for policing uniform standards out of school. Yes some girls seem to be wearing curtain pelmets as opposed to skirts and a lot of the boys do look like they've been dragged through a hedge backwards. A case of rebellion coupled with no sense of pride with some.

Yes, there are a lot of skirts that are far too short but I think to call it "poor care by parents" is very wrong and could be taken as insulting. Children can leave home with a skirt at a reasonable length and shorten it as soon as they are out of sight.
Poor care is not making sure your child is safe, fed and happy.

Is someone actually going to asking my question about change in uniform?

Yes there will be a change of uniform and the girls will be wearing trousers instead of skirts.

They used to change the uniform every year at Priory when I was there 20-25 years ago. When we started it was a blue V-necked jumper but everyone ignored that and wore sweatshirts so they changed it to blue sweatshirts at which point everyone started wearing black ones so they changed the uniform to that and so on.
Nobody ever tucked their shirts in, the girls wore shorter skirts than they were supposed to, hardly anyone ever remembered their tie and those who did tucked it in or pulled all the grey and blue threads out of it and you know what? Pretty much everyone still managed to get decent grades and go on to college. If you've got school-age kids then with government cuts being what they are you've got more to worry about than uniform standards, especially if your kids go to Ringmer where most of the staff have left since the academy chain took over.
If you don't have school-age kids then you really should stop worrying about what they're wearing...
