'Schoolchildren's bags are being searched for sweets in a crackdown on junk food.
Pupils at Charles Dickens School in Broadstairs, Kent are having their bags trawled through by teachers imposing a total ban on fatty snacks, energy drinks and crisps.
Children caught smuggling sugary contraband into the comprehensive school have their snacks confiscated at the school gates and won't be returned.
A school statement on its website reads: 'Sweets, fizzy drinks, energy drinks and multi-pack sizes of unhealthy food/drink are not allowed to be brought into school.
'Bag checks will take place every morning and any found will be confiscated and not returned to students.
'The checks include wearing the correct uniform and that all students are wearing formal school shoes.'
A statement on the school's website says: 'We had noticed a deterioration in concentration, learning and behaviour particular from students bringing into school large multi-packs of unhealthy food, snacks and drinks.'
But some angry parents have slammed the move as over the top.'
