Pupils have been banned from wearing expensive designer coats to school to stop other kids feeling poor.
Woodchurch High School in Wirral, in Northwest England, says students are no longer allowed to dress in jackets from Canada Goose, Moncler or Pyrenex, which cost up to 1,000 pounds ($1,280) each.
The Church of England academy sent a letter home to parents informing them that the ban is part of a “poverty proofing” scheme, according to MailOnline.
The letter said: “As you are all aware from an email that was sent out yesterday, pupils will not be permitted to bring in Canadian (sic) Goose and Monclair (sic) coats after the Christmas break.
“The support from parents/carers has been overwhelmingly positive and we are very thankful for this. Some have also asked whether Pyrenex coats, which are also in a similar price range (with some also having real fur) will also be prohibited. I am writing to confirm that these brands will also be prohibited after Christmas. Thank you for your ongoing support.”
