School threatens Muslim girl's parents with legal action because her school skirt is too long

Siham Hamud, 12, had been wearing an ankle-length skirt to school for years, but was allegedly told the school uniform was incorrect last month, December 2020.

Her father Idris, 55, said Siham was sent home from Uxbridge High School to change every day in December, and told to return wearing the correct uniform, but she refused.

The school, Uxbridge High School, in Hillingdon, west London, says girls should wear black trousers or a black pleated skirt from official uniform suppliers, which the family says falls above the knee. Idris, who has 8 kids, said both uniform choices go against his family's Islamic religion.

The family said they recently discovered a new school uniform rule about skirts was introduced two years ago, stating shorter school-branded skirts had to be worn. But the family claim they didn’t know, and Siham continued wearing her longer skirt, unaware until she was pulled up on December 1. She was sent home to change but didn’t return, and the same thing happened each day for the three weeks of term in December, her family said.

The school, has now threatened Idris and his wife Salma Yusuf, 44, with legal action over Siham’s alleged unauthorised absences.

Siham, who is currently studying from home due to lockdown restrictions, said:

I don't see any problem here.

Mr Idris should send the girl to an Islamic school which shares the same ideologies as he and his Islamic family. SIMPLE.

I’m a Muslim but na Mr. Idris like wahala. Must you be dragged before you know you should enroll your children in to an Islamic school instead. If the school says “this is how we want our uniform to look like”, why your own wahala

Siham Hamud, 12, had been wearing an ankle-length skirt to school for years,

I'm a bit confused

Secondary education starts at the age of 11 in the UK and she's currently 12, so I can only assume the 'years' this article mentions she spent wearing an ankle length skirt wasn't at this establishment for secondary school years?

Rules are rules at the end of the day, unless the school suddenly changed after saying it was fine or something.

Muslims in Christian countries should learn to live by the laws of the land. When Christians go to muslim countries like Saudi Arabia and others they are always forced to obey their Islamic ways.

Some kids start secondary school as early as 9 in naij so there is a possibility she's been wearing it for years.

How was it at your school? I actually don't remember anyone wearing ankle length skirts in my time. It was either thigh length skirts(with tights during the winter) or trousers.
