James Alderson started this petition to Geoff Courfueld (Chair of governors)

The current Policy:

No extreme haircuts/styles - no less than grade 1 back and sides. Smart, sensible short back and sides are allowed but No extreme short back and sides with a longer 'mop' or extreme spiked hair on top. No hair dyes. Hair cuts must be blended in - no tramlines or skin fades. No coloured braids /coloured strands.

This is an out of date policy as it does not allow children to express their creativity.  I think in the recent 12 months a lot of people have realised that life is short.  Lakelands has recently started to offer more creative studies and I encourage this but they should also update their polices with the times. girls seem to be allowed to have hand bags rather than back packs and have a mountain of make up on when I believe these also contravene school rules.

I would recommend the following amendment: 

Remove: No extreme short back and sides with a longer 'mop' or extreme spiked hair on top. Hair cuts must be blended in - no tramlines or skin fades. 

Another point I have to make when speaking to Mrs Evans that she spends a lot of her time calling parents to report that children are in isolation.  This is a waste of tax payers money employing people to enforce pathetic rules that do not apply in the real world.

I can appreciate the school will not accept extreme hair colours or any hair dye and this I do agree with as children will do this without their parents knowledge and some hair styles are very extreme but I think this should be more defined (no mohawks, no mullets no dreadlocks) possibly examples as this policy is very vague and non specific.

I hope that this petition  gets the attention it deserves and other parents will support me on this.
