A MUM has said she is “disgusted” after her son was put into isolation at school because of his haircut.
Ryan Wild, 13, had his hair cut in his normal style just before he went back to Hall Park Academy in Eastwood, Nottinghamshire for the new term.
But Serena Fowkes, 34, has said despite his hair being cut "very smartly" he was put into after being back at school for three days.
“Since he started the school in year 7 he has had the same haircut and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it,” the mum-of-four told the Nottingham Post.
"On Monday he was put into isolation because of his hair, he had to sit in a cubicle and stare at a wall instead of being in lessons and I think that is disgusting - why should he miss out on his education when he has done nothing wrong?
"When I have been at the school I have seen plenty of other kids with very messy and long scraggly hair and Ryan's hair is very smart."
She says her son has been at the school for two years and has never had a problem with his haircut.
Since being put in isolation he has been "upset" and feels like he is being "picked on", she said.
The Redhill Academy Trust website, their policy on haircuts is explained.

It says: "We expect hair styles to be neat and tidy and not extreme in any way.
“This includes tightly-shaven hair, tramlines or the use of brightly-coloured dyes. In the interest of student safety, long hair must be tied back in PE lessons."
The school has not so far commented on why Ryan was put into isolation.
