Parents Told To Get Dressed When Dropping Their Kids Off At School

Tags: scoopla, life

It seems every parent at Skerne Park Academy has reached maximum chill as they drop their kids off and attend school functions whilst still in their pyjamas and slippers.

The Headteacher of the English school has written to parents in an attempt to get them to stop wearing pyjamas to school - 

Just thought we'd share this letter Skerne Park School sent to parents (just a bit of fun and to provoke thoughts). Do they make a good point? Or should people be free to decide their attire?

In the letter, she writes:

"I have noticed there has been an increasing tendency for parents to escort children to and from school while still wearing their pyjamas and, on occasion, even slippers… Could I please ask that when you are escorting your children, you take the time to dress appropriately in day wear that is suitable for the weather conditions."

So far, the school has received mostly positive feedback, with parents agreeing that someone needed to say something. 

Parent Phil Naylor says:

"We all support the school and I hope this helps get the message across to parents. ‘It’s disgraceful, we should be guiding our children not giving them bad habits."

Other parents, however, have still chosen to rock up in their robe and slippers. 

We understand where the school is coming from, wanting to seem sophisticated and project a good influence on the kids and all… but we also can’t help but feel inspired by these parents and their ability to break down the fashion standards and wear sleepwear to important functions. 

Do you think the parents should ditch the PJs?
