Parents told not to wear pyjamas for school drop-off – or pick up



Parents have been asked not to turn up to school in pyjamas and dressing gowns when dropping their children off or in the morning – or picking them up after 3pm.

Parents say not only are parents arriving in the playground first thing in the morning wearing their night clothes, they are still wearing the same ones when they pick them up in the afternoon.

And some say the problem has been going on for at least 10 years, reports TeessideLive.

Ayresome Primary School, in Middlesbrough, has sent a message to parents asking them to dress appropriately.

The message reads “Please can we ask that all parents/carers dress appropriately when dropping off and collecting children from school.

“Dressing gowns on the schoolyard are not appropriate.”

One father, who asked not to be named, said: “I’m absolutely sick of it. It’s not hard to get dressed in the morning. Imagine how much those kids are going to be ridiculed when they get into school.

“They (the parents) don’t even put on a fresh pair to come and collect them.

“A lot of the parents are disgusted by it.”

Parent Aimee Baker said: “My oldest who came here is 17 now and they were doing it then. They’re local parents and it takes only two minutes to chuck some clothes on so there’s no reason.

“They’re taking the kids to school in their pyjamas and coming back in the same ones.

“It’s embarrassing for the children. There’s no excuse you should get washed and dressed every morning.”

Another anonymous mum said: “It takes two minutes to take your dressing gown off and put a coat on.

“It’s not just a dressing gown though it’s full pyjamas, then a dressing gown and slippers. It’s just normal around here now. “

A third who asked not to be named added: “The mams shouldn’t be coming to school in their pyjamas. They’re night clothes for a reason so why would you come out in them during the day time.

“The children will think it’s acceptable and start repeating it.”

He added: “They never listen to what the school says so I doubt it’s going to change unfortunately.”

Teesside Live witnessed some parents in dressing gowns on Friday morning.

Ayresome Primary School has been contacted for comment.
