SCHOOL BANS STUDENT FROM WEARING EXPENSIVE SCHOOL SHOES CLAIMING THEY LOOK LIKE TRAINERS

Some private schools are very good at causing unnecessary for parents. Sometimes a parent spends so much on a durable school item so we don't keep buying the same thing every term.
A mother is furious after her son was banned from wearing his new £48 Clarks school shoes because they look too much like trainers.
Nicola Ingerfield, 43, forked out £400 this summer on new school uniforms for her two children, including the Harlem Spin shoes for 12-year-old Alfie.
But the footwear fell foul of a strict new uniform policy at Mangotsfield School in Bristol, which has just converted into an academy.
Teachers have given Alfie one week to buy a new pair - which Nicola says she cannot afford.
"I can't believe they said they look more like trainers," she said.
"The shoes are made from leather and look very smart.

"Clarks advertise them as school shoes and everyone I've spoken to agrees they don't look like trainers.
"He has always been a model pupil - he has never got into trouble in his life."
The Clarks Harlem Spin black leather shoes are part of Clarks' school range and are described on its website as having "a casual look that's perfect for school and the playground".



 Nicola claims the deputy head told Alfie he would be forced to wear borrowed shoes if he returns in the Clarks ones next week.
"I'm looking into whether I can transfer him," she said. "I'm so angry about the way they are treating him."
Headteacher David Spencer said the school had worked hard to ensure parents were fully aware of the new 'high standards'.
