Parents at one school are being told not to dress up their children for World Book Day because of concerns about cost.

Staff at St Nicholas Priory School in Great Yarmouth sent out a Facebook message to parents on March 2 which asked pupils to come into school in normal uniform, and said that "members of staff will instead come up with an exciting costume to inspire the children".

One said that it was "nice to see the school doing something different" by encouraging the teachers to dress up, and another pointed out that dressing up was "a waste of money", and that the day should be about "the joy of books and getting into reading".
