PARENTS have complained after their daughters were sent home from school for wearing 'excessively tight' trousers.
Angry mums say their children are missing vital lessons because of Feltham Community College's 'overly strict' new uniform policy.
A number of parents have contacted the Chronicle to say their daughters were excluded after turning up in trousers the school deemed too tight.
Mary Tobin said her daughter Georgia Tobin, 15, was turned away at the gates on Wednesday despite having the same make of trousers she had been wearing since year seven.
"They're normal black school trousers but the school's saying they're too skinny," she said.
"It's her GCSE year and they're more worried about what she's wearing than what she's learning."
Vanessa Walsh's daughter Claire, 14, was also sent home this week for wearing the wrong trousers.
"I bought the trousers from New Look and they were part of the school range so I don't understand why they're not acceptable," she said.
"There were about 12 girls sent home this week because they didn't have the right trousers, which is ridiculous."
The school's new uniform policy states students should wear 'plain black, classic uniform' trousers, with jeans, leggings or 'excessively tight' trousers not acceptable.
The Chronicle understands the school, in Browell's Lane, Feltham, has offered to lend parents money for new trousers.
However, the mothers we have spoken to said they did not want to be in debt to the school.
Hard-pushed parents have also criticised the school's new policy of charging a £5 deposit for stationery.
The Chronicle has contacted the school, which has not yet responded.
