Permission to wear leavers hoodies

At PACA, we haven't been granted permission to wear the leavers hoodies. These hoodies are part of our year 11 year as this is the year we leave and move on. We have all paid for these hoodies and would love to actually be able to wear them. But, unfortunately, we aren't able to wear them.  Realistically, it seems to be a debatable topic. There are reasons for, and there are reasons against. The baby pink hoodies have been said to be too vibrant to be work and may be a reason that we don't have the permission. As well as that, it has been said that sometimes the hoodie doesn't match with the uniform.  However, us year 11s at PACA would love to wear them as during these cold days, we can stay warmer than we would in a jumper and blazer. In addition to that, this would be one little reward and bit of freedom that we year 11s can have. This is due to the fact that we are facing a lot of stress, pressure and hard-work for our GCSEs. Simply wearing this hoodie would be one less issue and problem for us.  For most previous years, they have always worn the hoodies. I personally have never asked if they had the permission. I am, however, aware that many other schools across the UK wear these hoodies and it doesn't seem to affect their learning.  I am able to see both sides of the arguments but obviously are more biased towards the year 11s. I was asked to make a petition by students and parents so that we can show what this means to us. Whether we're successful or not, we'll still show a community of people coming together to change something.
