Mums of primary school kids have been warned against wearing "skimpy" skirts and "revealing clothing".

The guidance was issued by Seymour Primary in Crawley after some turned up in "see-through skirts", pyjamas and "revealing clothing that looked like underwear".

The school operates a strict uniform policy for kids designed to "give a sense of pride and commitment to its values".

But a letter sent to parents marked "Playground Etiquette" suggested some mums hadn't observed the same standards, according to The Sun.

The letter reads: "Wearing clothes that are too skimpy or for other times of day is not setting a good example."

Co-headteachers Carol Collins and Emma Eardley said: "In response to increasing numbers of parents wearing pyjamas and, at times revealing clothing that looked like underwear, the school issued a note asking parents to consider dressing more appropriately."

One parent agreed, saying: "I've seen mums in dressing gowns and slippers, and one wearing a see-through mini skirt and crop top on a cold, spring day — you could literally see everything.

"Not to be outdone, another mum was showing such a full cleavage in a V-neck top that nobody knew where to look."

However another parent said the letter was "over the top" in its tone and suggested some mums were dressing in a tarty way.

The school's co-headteachers appeared to concede the tone was perhaps a little strong.

They added: "While well intended as guidance the school acknowledges the wording could have been less prescriptive."

Despite the furore, the antics of some skimpily-clad parents don't appear to have lowered the reputation the West Sussex primary school with regulators

In its last inspection education watchdog Ofsted rated it "good".

Daily Star has approached the school for a response.
