'Parents are fuming after a school announced they will fine them a pound for every five minutes they are late picking up their children and even ring social services if they don't collect them by 4pm.
Holy Trinity C of E Primary, in Gravesend, Kent has brought in the new rules this week to target those picking up their children just ten minutes late - anytime after 3.40pm.
The new policy has been branded a 'disgrace' by outraged parents and the headteacher has been slammed for punishing less well-off families.
One parent, who did not want to be named, told Kent Online: 'As parents of the school we were shocked and appalled to receive this notification from the school.
'Gravesend is a deprived area and many parents struggle to work due to the cost of childcare.
Lots of schools finish around the same time and this means that it is a struggle to get kids on time.

'The school did offer an after school club a couple of years ago but this was closed by the head teacher with little notice because it didn't make enough money.'
