    Surprised they don't have a dress-code policy that already 'covers' this I would of thought knee height would be appropriate. I also have to ask why now? Well into Summer term. Did they all suddenly change their skirts last week?

    They probably didnt. My current school and when i was a student at school have a constant battle getting girls to wear it longer. Most walk round with it very short. The school must have decided enough it enough.

    When I was in the sixth form, the boys were banned from wearing shorts, apparently it was distracting to girls

    Girls always will roll the skirts you, you tell them to get them longer and they magically appear longer then "shrink" again.

    Just reminded me of a male teacher who saw a girl on the corridor with a rolled up skirt. I told her to pull her skirt down, within seconds he went red realizing what he said

    There is a certain part of me that thinks it depends on the girl... But that would get me in all sorts of trouble with the PC brigade.

    Oh, dear god... I've now looked at the pictures in Midget's post.

    How about this?

    But scores of girls - and a few boys - refused to comply
    Scary... each to their own I suppose!

    We have a similar problem here, leaves nothing to the imagination.

    I'm not a big fan of uniforms, but I do agree that short skirts are not appropriate in a school environment. It is far too easy for a child/teen/tween to 'reveal' themselves when they don't mean to. And this can cause embarrassment for them, and for the people that saw.

    Our uniform policy allows skirts, but only of the 'school skirt' style, and only ones that are knee length or longer IIRC.
