Like me my younger cousin has a massive disliking for wearing shorts. He’s a very active boy, but really does not like the way it feels. He’s 14 and recently moved to a new school. He had some friends in this school before moving so he’s settling in well.
He went to his pe class in his usual jogging bottoms and school uniform pe shirt (the school issued shorts with the uniform but they are just generic black with no school branding) and was given a warning note for this and told he had to go to isolation for the lesson for not wearing the right uniform.
He does jujitsu and has since he was little and has many many sets of rashguard tights he trains in as again hates shorts. So I suggested he wear them under the shorts as he would when he goes to jujitsu. He had a old black pair and took them to school.
He left the changing room and his teacher told him he needed to take them off. So he hasn’t participated in pe since he started the school.
Options are coming up and he does really want to take pe. He’s a very active young man who does well in school and he wants to go onto study sport science when he’s old enough. He’s already decided his a levels and pe would be one of them.
Does anyone have any advice on how the school can be challenged? He wore completely appropriate clothing for participating in the pe class and his teachers are being awkward.
