A SCHOOL in Merseyside is to ban pupils from wearing designer coats. The ban will be put in place at Woodchurch High School in Birkenhead, to help tackle poverty-shaming.
This is when children feel less good, or are bullied because they can’t afford the same things as other kids at school. Coats from expensive brands such as Canada Goose, Moncler and Pyrenex won’t be allowed after the Christmas holidays.
The head teacher of the school, Rebekah Phillips, said parents have supported the ban. Some people on social media have called it a step too far, though. We’d love to know what you think!
