A MUM has hit out at her daughter’s school after claiming she has been sent home six times this term because her skit is too short.

Donna Taylor said she bought Libby Taylor-Ford, 14, three different school skirts for this term, but Cantonion High School in Cardiff said they were too short.

She also claimed a male teacher told her daughter: “I don’t want to be walking upstairs and see what you had for breakfast.”

The school had recently relaxed its uniform rules to allow girls to wear black skirts two inches above the knee, whereas before the skirt had to be knee length.

Donna said it was impossible to find a knee length skirt for her daughter and when she bought Libby trousers they were deemed to short because they came just above her ankle.

The mum told Wales Online: “My daughter has been sent home six times this term because her skirt is about three inches above the knee.

“What is too short? They should be concentrating on education and not what they are wearing.


“They are being too strict.”

Diane Gill, the school’s headteacher, said she had received “a lot of positive feedback” about the uniform rules, but there are still some pupils who are not adhering to the rules.

She added that Donna has not raised concerns with her directly and they failed to attend a meeting they were invited to.
