As parents, we are constantly reminded "Don't sweat the small stuff"... Then our DCs go to school, where teachers sweat so much small stuff that I'm surprised they don't dissolve. No wonder so many of them have nervous breakdowns.

As several others have pointed out - it has nothing to do with safety really it's just to ensure conformity about the sort of knot / length of tie etc.

DDs secondary do this (though she had a real tie at primary) but at least they had the balls to give the real reason why they were applying this policy rather than hide behind bogus Health and Safety excuses.
