Pupils at Woodhey High School in Bury, Manchester, broke down in tears after being told their trousers were a distraction to boys at school.

The schoolgirls were allegedly dragged into an emergency meeting when both male and female teachers demanded to feel their pants.

Angry parents have claimed their children will be threatened with disciplinary action if they don’t comply – something the school denies.

Although the trousers were purchased from an official uniform supplier, one father said his 11- and 13-year-old daughters were chosen for their outfit.

He told the Manchester Evening News: “We went to an official uniform supplier in Ramsbottom and bought two pairs of trousers for our daughters.

“They went to school on Monday and we were told that the trousers were unsuitable because they were too tight.

“Boys wore skintight trousers but weren’t pulled.

“We were told the reason for the girls was that the boys were watching them going up the stairs.

“They told my daughters that if they don’t come back with different pants they’ll get detention.

“My youngest daughter was terrified of going to high school and now she’s petrified to go back.”

A school spokesman said claims that the trousers would distract male students were “unfounded” and “absolutely not mentioned by the school”.

The angry father added that the schoolgirls were stopped by teachers for their uniforms when he was taking his daughters to school.

He said they asked them to lift their shirts to check their waistbands and feel the material of their pants.

“I came down Tuesday with a lot of other parents who were screaming and saying, ‘Don’t touch my daughter,'” he said.

“It was really quite awful. You go to school to learn not to be attacked like that.”

Another irate parent, who asked to remain anonymous, said: “It caused a lot of uproar. This is mainly the 7th graders attempt to follow the rules.

“They are all excited to be there and then they were told they were wearing the wrong uniform.

“The pants are tight fitting and they have no other options. It was upsetting for many of them because it was their first day of high school.

“Parents have been told they have until Wednesday to get the correct trousers.

“We know that 80 students have been isolated.

“A lot of parents just feel teased. Some have bought four pairs of pants that may now need to be thrown away.

“It’s too much. It’s very important for the students to keep their self-esteem. It’s unnecessary.”

It’s just a really awful way to start the new year

The parents also took to social media to share their outrage at the “disgusting” action.

One parent wrote: “After two days when my youngest daughter’s pants were considered perfectly acceptable, today they weren’t.

“She was dragged to the emergency trouser assembly. Apparently the 7th graders were crying because they were so scared.

“I’m disgusted with the school and feel like I let my daughters down by sending them to this absolute prankster of an organization. Sad situation.”

Another said: “Loads of girls being threatened with isolation and being asked to lift their shirts to check they’re wearing the right pants.

“When they are told that if their pants are too tight they will turn off the male student.

“That’s why they stopped the skirts. Forty students filled the hall after being dragged by teachers at reception in one day.

“It’s all pretty sad, really. As if kids with Covid haven’t had a bad time, mental health issues related to it.”

A third commented: “Bringing tears to a daughter explaining how she was treated this morning. Four teachers wanted to see the top of her pants.

“I would classify that as persistent, if not bullying. So disappointed in school.”

A Woodhey School spokesman said: “The school has been unwavering in clarifying what is expected of the uniform and communicating this to students and their families ahead of the summer break and during the holidays.

“Where uniform issues remain to be resolved, the relevant students were addressed yesterday to reaffirm the importance of adhering to the school’s dress code.

“Where students have been informed that their uniform is inappropriate, for example because it is too tight, this is related to the school’s new increased enforcement of their uniform rule.

“These rules are directly related to promoting high standards of behavior and expectations, with the school’s dress code further preparing students for the world of work.” Schoolgirls ‘moved to tears’ after being ‘lined up and tapped’ because their pants were ‘too tight’
