Somehow on Tuesday morning I found myself using a carpentry tool to file down the logo on the back of my son’s school shoes. After a few minutes it was agreed that this is madness as 1) it didn’t really work and 2) they are perfectly good school shoes as they are! On Monday – his first day at secondary school – my son had been sent to the isolation room to get a slip about his inappropriate footwear. It contravened uniform policy because a brand name appears on the shoes. The logo is barely visible. They are decent, standard children’s shoes. He was so upset by this he hardly slept that night.
He has a note from us explaining that these shoes are his school shoes now and any further discussion has to be between the school and his parents.
