Students at a secondary school have been told not to wear tight-fitting clothing to PE.

Presentation College Carlow spoke to all female students in their year groups last Friday and asked them not to wear leggings or tight bottoms.

Parents who contacted the school about the remarks have yet to receive a response. An online petition against the policy has been signed by 3,500 people.

One parent, who wishes to remain anonymous, feels her children were body-shamed: She said: "My 12 year old said 'no ankles, no knees, no collarbones, we're not allowed to show any skin ever, basically'.

"The older girl, she's 16, they were told they should have more respect for themselves."
