Primary school asks boys to wear skirts to class to 'promote equality'



Castleview Primary in Edinburgh has asked boys as well as girls as young as three to start wearing skirts to ‘promote equality.



An email to parents from Castleview said it wanted children to be ‘comfortable’ taking part and that trousers and leggings could be worn under the skirts if needed.



The school even offered to provide skirts for some youngsters if none were suitable at home. Teachers can wear skirts too.



The school said pupils in P6, the equivalent of Year 6 in England, came up with the idea after becoming aware of the Spanish campaign.



It added: ‘We want our school to be inclusive and promote equality.’Latest Post
