Teacher at my daughter's school threatened to chop bows off her socks on her FIRST DAY… it's totally crazy | The Sun

A MUM was “disgusted” after teachers threatened to chop bows off her daughter’s socks on the first day back.

Her 11-year-old was then given a 12-minute detention after wearing grey socks without bows on her second day, she claimed. 

Teachers have also warned her to replace her “inappropriate” black tote bag and threatened a detention if she wears socks with bows on again at Dixons Brooklands Academy in Manchester.

The mum-of-three called the situation “totally crazy”, the Manchester Evening News reported.

She added: "I'm just disgusted that kids have had a threat like this on their first day at high school.

"It doesn't state on any letters from school that no bows are allowed or no tote bags.

She shared a photo of her daughter's black socks and bag and says she can't understand why school has a problem with them.

"With regards to school bags we have stated that a bag should enable students to carry books, homework, equipment, their planner and a water bottle.
