Parents are asked not to leave off children in ‘inappropriate’ dressing gowns, according to the school.
A SCHOOL has requested that parents do not drop off their children in their robes or pyjamas.
The reminder has delighted parents of students at Ayresome Primary School in Middlesbrough, Teesside, who have grown “tired” of seeing their parents arrive in the schoolyard in their pajamas. In a courteous remark on Facebook on Friday, the school stated that such apparel is “not appropriate.”
Teesside Live spoke to one father who said: “I’m really fed up with it. Getting ready in the morning is not difficult.
“Imagine how much humiliation those youngsters will face once they start school.
“They don’t even put on a new pair of shoes when they come to get them.
“It’s disgusting to a lot of the parents.”
I’m completely fed up with it. Getting ready in the morning is not difficult. Another parent of a child at Ayresome Primary School, Aimee Baker, claimed she’s seen mothers and fathers wearing nightwear at the school gates for years.
“It’s humiliating for the kids. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t wash and dress in the morning “Aimee remarked.
“They send the kids to school in their pajamas and return in the same pajamas.
“They’re local parents, and getting dressed takes barely two minutes, so there’s no reason.”
Other parents at the gates agreed and expressed concern that the children would be mistreated as a result.
As one mother put it: “Taking off your dressing robe and putting on a coat takes two minutes.
“It’s not just a dressing gown; it’s a full set of pyjamas, followed by a dressing gown and slippers. It’s getting back to normal around here.” Another parent, who requested anonymity, said: “The mams shouldn’t be wearing their pajamas to school.
“Why would you wear them out during the day when they’re meant to be worn at night?
“The kids will think it’s fine and will start doing it again.”
The father of two claims that the school’s request will have no effect on how parents dress and that the problem is becoming worse.
“They never listen to what the school says,” he continued, “so I doubt that will change.”
Others, however, have turned to social media to defend the parents who wear nightgowns.
According to one Facebook user: “What does it matter? Why is it that everyone is so quick to pass judgment on others? “Brinkwire Summary News.” I mean, I don’t.
