Par­ent power to beat bag costs

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

MY son and daugh­ter who go to Stock­ley Academy have re­cently

been in­formed that if they do not come to school with the ‘new’ school bag with a logo on it that they will be pun­ished as if he/she has in­fringed any other part of the school uni­form pol­icy.

My daugh­ter is in year 11 come Septem­ber and my son in year 10.

I bought my daugh­ter a Cam­bridge Satchel plain black bag for school last year in the half price sale which cost me £60 as it was be­com­ing in­fu­ri­at­ing to keep buy­ing bags. I find this ab­so­lutely lu­di­crous con­sid­er­ing she only has roughly eight months left.

I would love to know what other par­ents think about this and if we could over-rule this as a com­mu­nity.
