Schools let children ditch uniforms during heatwave



One school in Bromsgrove says it wants to let children wear ‘loose, light coloured clothing‘ to help them keep ‘as cool as possible’ when temperatures peak next week

A growing number of schools are telling children to ditch uniforms as temperatures soar during the UK’s heatwave.

Students across the country are being allowed to wear their own clothes or PE kits during this week and the next to help them keep cool in the scorching weather.

The UK has been experiencing temperatures in their high 20s - and even low 30s - in the latest heatwave.

The weather is expected to get even more intense at the weekend, with the Met Office issuing a rare extreme heat warning from Sunday through to Tuesday.

The forecaster said there could be record-breaking temperatures at the start of next week when the mercury could rise to 35C.

Schools are already making preparations for the extreme heat on Monday and Tuesday.

Rosedale Primary School in Doncaster said it understood parents may be concerned about children’s safety with temperatures expected to soar at the start of next week.

”Both days will be non-uniform so children can wear something that is comfortable and keeps them cool,” it said in a Facebook post.

The move was praised by parents.

A middle school in Bromsgrove is also letting children ditch their uniforms.

St John’s CE Middle Academy said this would allow pupils to wear “loose, light coloured clothing that will help keep them as cool as possible” as it announced the move on Thursday.
