Sophie Barnes started this petition to Department of Education (Department of Education) and

School Uniforms should be banned in secondary schools. Here’s why: 

  • They prevent students from expressing their personality and culture.
  • They're a source of anxiety for low income families; uniforms are expensive and are an unnecessary cost.
  • Students want to be able to dress comfortably, in their choice of style. Uniforms don’t consider weather, and they’re not suitable for all year round.
  • They are uncomfortable. Concentration is increased when students feel like they’re in a safe environment, and wearing own clothes is much more pleasant than stiff blazers and itchy skirts. 
  • Uniforms don’t stop judgement from others. Wearing uniforms immediately makes you a representative of the school you’re from; others can judge you by your school, before they’ve even met you. Students shouldn’t be seen as a representative, just part of something bigger, they should be seen as their own person. 
  • Overall they’re just unnecessary. Wearing own clothes is something students need, when school is such a stress already.
