A London high school is threatening to take a couple to court as their daughter’s skirt is too long.
However the Muslim family have said a shorter skirt would be against their beliefs.

Dad Idris, 55, said she was sent home every day in December and told to come back in a shorter skirt, but she refused.
Uxbridge High School in West London insists girls should wear black trousers or pleated skirts from official suppliers.
Idris says the skirt is above the knee and so contravenes their beliefs, as do the trousers option.
The school has threatened him and wife Salma, 44, with legal action for unauthorised absences.
Idris, an athletics coach, added: “My daughter is being denied an education because of her religious beliefs.”
Siham, currently at home due to COVID, said: “It feels like bullying.”
School principal Nigel Clemens said the matter was subject to the school’s complaints policy so he could not comment further.
