Say "No" to children wearing plimsolls all day, every day at school

This petition had 102 supporters


We are all really pleased that the new builds at Suffield Park Infant School are now complete and the children will have new classrooms. However, the decision to ask that all children in years 1 and 2 to wear plimsolls at school 'to preserve the new floors' is ridiculous - firstly, it's a floor in an infant school, but more importantly plimsolls worn all day, every day can cause permanent damage. Children should always wear properly fitted shoes for long periods of time. Wearing plimsolls may preserve the floor longer, but will damage feet forever.
