Richmond School pupils facing detention for not wearing correct uniform

Richmond School.

Parents have been warned their child faces being placed in detention for failing to wear the correct uniform at Richmond School.

Letters have been sent out by the school advising that anyone’s child not wearing the approved uniform by October 1 will be issued with a C1.

School rules state that after receiving three C1s pupils would face detention from 3.30pm to 4.30pm.

The letters have been sent out by assistant head Steven Speakman.

The letter states: “As of the week beginning October 1st students not wearing the correct uniform will be issued with a C1 daily.

“We will not do this if you confirm the correct uniform has been ordered.”

The school has told parents they need to buy skirts and trousers with the school’s logo on from on-line company Schoolshop.

The skirts and trousers with the logo have become compulsory from the start of the current term.

The trousers cost between £15 and £18.50, while the skirts are being sold for between £12.50 and £17.

There is also a delivery charge of £3.95 on all orders under £47.

However, some parents have refused and have sent their children to school in uniform without the logos on, which can be bought for less than half the price at some supermarkets.

One parent told how she had been phoned by a member of school staff as her child was not wearing the trousers with the logo.

She said the school was considering buying pairs of trousers for children whose parents cold not afford them.

However, the parent told Richmondshire Today they were unhappy with the quality of the school trousers, as well as having to buy new uniform when they had already purchased clothing that still fitted.

“I have six children to put in clothes and I’m not throwing good clothes away and replacing with rubbish made ones,” the parent added.
