School uniform revisited: procedure, pressure and equality

Damian Carney, A. Sinclair

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The House of Lords’ decision in R. (on the application of Begum) v. The Headteacher and Governors of Denbigh High School considered whether a particular school uniform policy infringed a student's right to manifest her religion under Article 9. This paper analyses the content of this decision, and explores how schools should approach the issue of balancing reglious rights with other interests in designing their uniform policy.
