Changing for P​.​E lessons: Giving Gifford Primary school children the rights to privacy & decency

Children as young as four and five years old are expected to get changed in school for their PE lessons. Girls and boys are forced to get changed together simultaneously in front of their teachers.

Changing facilities are not being provided due to 'lack of free space'. Children are also not permitted to change in the toilets due to 'hygiene reasons'.

Girls and boys are expected to casually change in front of each other in the same room until they reach year 6 (11 years old). This is not right and inappropriate for so many reasons.

Forcing primary school children to undress in front of their peers and teachers is unfair. Everyone deserves the right to some privacy & decency and that includes children. 

As parents, concerned for the well being of our children we demand that our children are given the right to some privacy. Separate changing facilities must be provided, otherwise alternative options should be given. 

We kindly urge Gifford primary school to revise these school arrangements and provide solutions in place.


Concerned parents!
