Dean of Discipline at Manchester High School, Sigrid Miller, says recent changes to the school’s grooming policy will have no effect on the teaching and learning process at the institution.

Her comments follow the decision to now allow female students to wear shoulder length hair extensions and braids to school.

The Dean says the change will allow the school’s administration to focus on other pressing areas of discipline.

She was speaking on Nationwide This Morning with Ricardo Brooks and Tauna Thomas.

Mrs. Miller also noted that the change in the school’s rules will be applied across the genders, allowing boys to sport fades to school.

The change in the school’s grooming and hairstyle policy came about after consultation with parents and the wider school community.

It took effect at the start of the new school year.
