The skirt is A-line which can make the girls feel uncomfortable when they sit down as it becomes tight The skirt is frequently rolled up leading to some clashes between pupils and staff Is worn with socks and many girls are asking for tights in Winter The current skirt
The proposed new skirt The skirt appears blue in the picture, but is actually mainly purple
Box pleats make it difficult to roll over, thus hopefully reducing staff/pupil conflict over skirt length John Hall (the suppliers) will stitch an ‘exclusively designed for All Hallows by John Hall’ label into the new skirts to make it hard for the skirt to be copied cheaply The cut of the skirt is more flattering and much more comfortable when the girls sit down The material is of a better quality and the girls so far have said that the skirt has a ‘more current’ style The skirt looks well with black tights which will please many of the girls in Winter!
Implications COST – the new skirt is approximately £5.00 more expensive than the current variety (the tartan material costs more to weave) (£23.95 compared to £18.50) However – this money could be saved by swopping the purple PE briefs for plain black ones (a saving of £5.00) PE staff are happy with this. The cost of the PE skirt will also be reduced by £2.00 anyway from September as new suppliers have been sourced by Justs/Delta This should make the TOTAL cost of a girl’s uniform £2.00 cheaper overall from September 2013. SUPPLY – Suppliers have asked if they can be informed by Christmas of any changes to the uniform for September 2013 CONSULTATION – The student and year councils are in the process of being consulted about the skirt as are Year 6 pupils. Reactions have been very positive overall.
