What are your experiences of the veil? Schools will be able to ban pupils from wearing full-face veils on security, safety or learning grounds under new uniforms guidance set to be issued. Much has been made on the debate surrounding pupils wearing veils in schools with a handful of high profile cases going to court. In February, a 12-year-old girl failed in her High Court attempt to overturn her Buckinghamshire school's niqab ban. The new guidelines suggest that efforts should be made to accommodate religious clothing but stresses the importance of teachers and pupils being able to make eye contact. Should pupils be allowed to wear religious dress in schools? Should individual schools make decisions on these matters? Do the schools in your community allow the veil to be worn? I think it's stupid. Yes the UK is a Christian country and yes we don't normally wear veils as part of our religion (well, I don't think of myself as Christian, but the UK as a whole) but we should respect other peoples religion and let others wear the veil, if they are forced take it off then I think that's nasty and wrong and disrespectful.
