Save Argoed's Black Trousers - BBB Campaign
Today the Argoed told us that from September we are not allowed to wear black trousers. We must wear grey trousers from September 2016.
Everyone has their own reasons for not agreeing to this, mine are that my mum has already bought my trousers for September and I do not feel that grey trousers will look good with our uniform.
We are campaigning to keep the uniform as it is. We don't want or need change.
Parents will have to buy new trousers for the new uniforms.
Families will not be able to pass down their uniforms to their brothers and sisters.
The grey trousers with our grey t-shirts will look a state.
Is this really Succeeding together?
This petition is to ask the Governors of the Argoed to revisit their decision to change the school uniform.
** This petition was hand delivered to the School on Monday 13th June 2016 along with a request for the following information:
- Minutes from the Governors meeting when the matter was discussed.
- Full and frank disclosure as to the reason for the school uniform changes.
- Evidence and document used when making the decision, eg: information regarding how the new uniform can be sourced locally and full details as to who collected information and the date they collected it.
- Explanation as to why the Department for Educations’ Policy Guidance was not considered when making the changes.
The Head Teacher has acknowledge receipt of the documents but to date, no response has been received from the Governing Body (17th June 2016).
