Plans to introduce a uniform headscarf at a Burnley school have been abandoned.
Last term bosses at Sir John Thursby Community College announced a uniform covering after concerns were raised that headscarves were not being worn correctly.
But hundreds of people signed a petition protesting against the move saying the new headscarves were uncomfortable, not sufficiently modest and breached health and safety.
Under former headteacher David Burton, the Eastern Avenue school launched a consultation with parents.
Now it has written to them outlining requirements for the wearing of headscarves but has abandoned the idea of having its own one.
