Sweet Valley Primary principal Ian Ryan has confirmed that the school's current uniform policy prohibits learners from wearing winter gear such as scarves and beanies.
A learner's mother called into the Breakfast Show last week complaining that children were not allowed to wear these items.
Principle Ryan feels that this undermines the school's policy. The school does allow for a warm fleece-lined jacket for parents to purchase, he says.
He adds that parents who have issues with the current uniform policy are welcome to contact him directly.
Meanwhile, the Western Cape Education Department (WCED) says that parents who enroll their children in a school agree to abide by its code of conduct.
WCED ministerial spokesperson Jessica Shelver has urged concerned parents to approach school governing bodies with their grievances.
