1 All Hallows Catholic High School The proposed newschool skirt“Growing together in the spirit of Christ's love”
2 The current skirtThe skirt is A-line which can make the girls feel uncomfortable when they sit down as it becomes tightThe skirt is frequently rolled up leading to some clashes between pupils and staffIs worn with socks and many girls are asking for tights in Winter
3 The proposed new skirtThe skirt appears blue in the picture, but is actually mainly purple
4 Box pleats make it difficult to roll over, thus hopefully reducing staff/pupil conflict over skirt lengthJohn 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 cheaplyThe cut of the skirt is more flattering and much more comfortable when the girls sit downThe material is of a better quality and the girls so far have said that the skirt has a ‘more current’ styleThe skirt looks well with black tights which will please many of the girls in Winter!
5 ImplicationsCOST – 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/DeltaThis 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 2013CONSULTATION – 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.
