A secondary school is cracking down on its uniform policy and confiscating children's coats at the gates - as they arrive wrapped-up warm for snow.
Harris Academy has been accused of stripping children of winter clothing which fail to meet its harsh new policy which demands students wear black coats only.
The Orpington secondary school, in south east London, banned hoodies under any circumstances and parents claim their children are being put into isolation for wearing the wrong coloured coat.
New rules published on the school's website said: 'Students should have an appropriate and sensible black outdoor coat.
'Hoodies are NOT allowed under any circumstances and will be confiscated.
'No sleeveless jackets or leather jackets. Coats must be removed before entering a classroom so that students are ready to learn.'
The school believes wearing a uniform helps students develop 'a sense of loyalty and belonging' and encourages them to take pride in their appearance.
Black fleece gloves and scarves and a selection of black coats are available to purchase from the website including a £29 waterproof coat and a £15 reversible fleece jacket.
But parents blasted the new policy they claim is putting their children's education at risk.'
