My son was isolated at school because of his HAIRCUT…his teachers said it was extreme

A FATHER has told how his son was isolated for a HAIRCUT after teachers described the style as “extreme”.

James Cullen said his 12-year-old son Jacob opted for blonde highlights and a partially shaved skull for his back-to-school haircut earlier this month.

But hours after Jacob entered St. Andrew’s Catholic School in Leatherhead, surreyPapa James got a call.

The teachers called the cut “unacceptable” and told James his son was isolating.

After Jacob was separated from his friends at every break for a week, James asked to meet with the school.

The father says his punishment was disproportionate – and would not have been imposed at all if Jacob had been a girl.

said James SurreyLive: “At the meeting I had with the school, his year leader suggested he shave his head.

“I don’t think for a minute if he had been a student they would have said that.”

The school has denied asking Jacob to shave, saying the rules for “extreme” fashion are clear.

Jacob’s isolation ended Tuesday, and the teachers wanted to “put an end to the matter.”

But James said: “I don’t want to put an end to it, I’ve only just started.

“What we need is consistency, the rules must apply across the board.

“I’ve taken Jacob to school every morning for the past seven months and I’ve seen a lot of students with bleached blonde hair.”

Principal Alan Mitchell said all uniform rules are the same for boys and girls.

The school’s website states: “Extreme fads in clothing, shoes and hairstyle are not permitted.

HAIR AND SQUARE?

“Hair color and hairstyle must be appropriate for school. Colored hair is not acceptable. Number 2 is the shortest cut allowed.”

Mr Mitchell said the rules are clear and consistent.

It comes as a mother called her son’s school “ridiculous” after he was expelled from class for being “clean and tidy”. Haircut is too short.

Kelly Smith was shocked to discover teachers had declared her 14-year-old son Jason Kirkbride’s short back and sides “inappropriate”.

And mum Hannah Clews has been furious at teachers who isolating her son after deciding the haircut she was giving him at home was “too short”.

Niall Clews, 12, struggled to see through his curly tresses during lockdown – and when the barbers were closed, Hannah got out the clippers herself.

The mother of two, who lives in Rowley Regis, West Midlandsit buzzed on the back and sides on a note of two to one and after trimming it at the top she was pleased with her handiwork.

But when Niall returned to school the next week, he was told his cut at home was “too short” and not in line with school rules, claims Hannah, 33.
