My daughter goes to a mixed school. The school has decided to have a crackdown on the girls uniform, obviously the boys all wear their uniform perfectly. Yesterday the school sent a man (presumably a male teacher, my daughter did not know him) into the class to check the girls uniforms. He came into the class, told all the girls to stand up, and then checked whether the girls skirts were too short, or trousers too tight. My daughter was really upset, she felt like she had been picked on for being female, all the boys were looking at her to see whether they could see anything, and she is furious that the mere fact that she is female was a reason for making her be checked (her uniform has never been an issue). To make it worse, the school took all the girls that had "failed" to be taught out of normal lessons for the day, and girls as young as 11 were told that their clothing was provocative. Any suggestions where I go from here?

Sorry cannot seem to post in the work forum. This is a warning for anyone considering using this company to claim your uniform tax rebate. Please please don't sign up to this company, it is so easy to do it yourself. Either ask your HR department or write a simple letter stating where you work your NI number and that you have washed your uniform at home for X number of years. Also state if you want tax back in a cheque or added to your tax code. This company have a facebook page, they block anyone who leaves comments like "do it yourself". They are hiding the truth from those who sign up. They take over 20% of your claim for simply writing a letter that costs pennies. Its far quicker to claim yourself, approx 6 weeks. These things make me so mad! I had to shout about it!
