A primary school in Hartlepool has been criticised for telling girls to wear black tights with school skirts in the "interest of modesty". St Hild's Church of England School sent the letter to parents last week highlighting concerns regarding the "length of skirts worn by female students". In the letter, Grant Carswell, deputy head pastoral, said that all girls wearing school skirts would be required to wear opaque black tights of "no less than 40 denier" in order to make sure pupils were "properly safeguarded on their way to and from school". The letter prompted criticism from parents. Carol McEnaney told the Hartlepool Mail how her daughter was handed tights by the school when she arrived wearing socks, and was told she would be "sent home" if she didn't wear them.

Without having to spare mental energy deciding what to wear or comparing their clothes to those of their classmates, the hope is that their young minds will be able to focus entirely on the vital educational content their teachers and textbooks are presenting. If the school sticks so closely to this rule, then it is clear the management believes in the hierarchical management structure and does not understand the changes in the education system. These recommendations include group collaboration; active learning; active participation; knowledge construction; learner-centred pedagogies; meaning-making discourse; and higher-level thinking, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation of real-world problems.
