A mum has hit out at a school after her son was put into isolation for wearing these black shoes.

Nathan Smith, 11, was sent out of his lesson at Cheadle Hulme High School after a teacher spotted the reflective strips on the back of his footwear.

His mum Heather Smith claims her son was then placed in the isolation room for the day and told to colour the reflectors in with a black marker pen.

Only then was Nathan, who has ADHD, allowed back into his lesson, according to Heather.

A spokesman for the school said the uniform policy is made clear to all parents.

But Heather, a mum-of-two, said:

When Heather contacted the school about the shoes on Thursday she was told her son’s behaviour had also been an issue that week.

She added:

A spokesman for Cheadle Hulme High School said the school’s uniform policy was made clear to all parents at the beginning of term.

Guidelines given out to parents state that trainers are not allowed ‘in keeping with the smart appearance of a school uniform’.
