A MUM has lashed out at her daughter’s school after she was put in isolation because she wearing trousers which were “too tight”.
Mums and dads claim the rules are "ridiculous" and "inconsistent" over trousers which teachers say are unacceptable at John Of Gaunt School in Trowbridge, Wiltshire.3Lucy Daniels said her daughter Hayley has been told her trousers were too shortCredit: SWNS
Lou Gover, 42, claims her daughter was told her trousers were too tight and she would be put in isolation until a new pair were bought.
"My 14-year-old daughter was sent to isolation on Monday for wearing trousers that were apparently too tight," she said.
"It's ridiculous. We were told the trousers were fine a month ago but today the same trousers are not acceptable.
"They told me they would have to keep her in isolation until they were replaced. I told them I would keep her off school.3Hayley's mum says the school provided her with trousers during lockdownCredit: SWNS
"I have been offered a refund and have spoken to the head about comments made by teachers.
"This has gone on for months and caused a lot of stress where different teachers have different rules. It's all costly and stressful for parents and the children."
The Sun Online has contacted the school for comment on the claims.
Another mother has also companied about the school's strict uniform policy after they said her daughter's trousers were too short - despite being the ones who provided them.
Lucy Daniels, 35, said her daughter Hayley, 13, has been told her trousers were "too short" and showed "too much ankle."

Lucy, from Trowbridge, said: "It's getting beyond a joke now.
"The trousers she's wearing are ones the school provided for her because at the time we were still in lockdown and I could not go out and buy her any.
"She still wears the trousers to this day and still continues to get in isolation for the trousers the school provided."
Lucy claims different teachers are applying the policy inconsistently - one teacher says the trousers are okay while another says they are unacceptable.
Paul Skipp, the school's headteacher said they have developed high standards and expectations and part of that is to be consistent in their approach to upholding the uniform policy.
He said: "Before half term we wrote to parents on four separate occasions reminding them that all students are required to be in full uniform. We are delighted that virtually all students adhered to the policy as they returned from half term.Most read in NewsExclusiveSINGER NICKEDChart-topping pop star in 30s arrested on suspicion of assaulting girlfriend'DISGRACEFUL'Woman, 55, slammed after running topless during Prince Philip's funeralREGULAR JOEOff-duty Biden dresses down in running shoes at G7 bar - but only has a CokeFINAL SELFIETragic last pics of sisters dancing before '"satanic sacrifice" knife murder'UH-BODid Boris Johnson almost hold hands with Joe Biden's wife at G7 love-in?CARRIE COTCarrie Symonds plays with son Wilfred as she joins Jill Biden on beach walk
"Parents of a small minority of children not in school uniform were contacted; they swiftly supported by bringing in the correct uniform whilst their children remained learning. By the end of the first day all students were fully complying with the policy.
"As a school we have recognised the economic difficulties of the pandemic and offered to provide uniform or reimburse any parent who is experiencing financial challenges, as we have done on many occasions.

Paterson Detectives Nab Newark Man Who Had Loaded Gun Sticking Out Of Bag, Authorities Say
Paterson detectives chased down a Newark man after they found him standing on a city street corner with a loaded gun, authorities said.
Alexis DeLaRosa, 18, was in a group hanging at the corner of North 6th and Clinton streets when Detectives Mustafa Dombayci and John Traynor spotted the gun's magazine sticking out of a fanny pack around his neck, Public Safety Director Jerry Speziale said.
As they got out of their car, DeLaRosa took off, Speziale said.
He ran down Jefferson Street, tossing the bag over a resident's fence, then crawled under a parked vehicle on North 7th Street, where he was taken into custody, the director said.
Detectives Suquan Gary and Levis Qirjako assisted, Speziale said.
The investigators recovered a 9mm semi-automatic High Point pistol and a 34-round high-capacity magazine, he said.
DeLaRosa was sent to the Passaic County Jail to await a first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court on weapons-related charges, among other counts.
The gun was sent to the State Police lab to determine whether it may have been fired in any crimes.
