Nicki Mawby, 35, from Whittlesey, Cambridgeshire, is currently in a row over her son Tyler Hickin’s black Vans, which apparently breach the schoolâ€™s uniform policy.
Hickinâ€™s school, Sir Harry Smith Community College, asks students to wear black shoes without brands or logos as part of their uniform guidelines.
Hickin, whose black Old Skool Vans have a red logo on each heel, was found to be in breach of the rules, and removed from lessons.
â€œThey put him in the behavioural support unit and said until he changed his footwear he wonâ€™t be allowed back into lessons,â€ Mawby explained. “And if he didnâ€™t change them he will have to find another school.â€
The school has already punished a further 50 pupils for inappropriate schoolwear, Mawby claimed.
The mother is worried her sonâ€™s exclusion from classes will affect his learning progress.
â€œIâ€™m worried itâ€™s affecting his learning. Iâ€™m incredibly annoyed heâ€™s been removed from lessons, she said. “He does not know whatâ€™s been covered.â€
Despite her complaints to the school about the treatment of her son, she said they will not back down and she will likely need to buy her son a new pair of shoes.
In a statement, the school said parents had been forewarned of the regulations.

â€œParents/carers were sent confirmation in the summer term, as a reminder, of our uniform expectations,â€ it warned.
“We expect students to be smart and to follow uniform rules.
â€œA small number of students have returned to school wearing incorrect uniform and we are currently in discussions with their parents about our expectations.â€
Back-to-school season has seen a series of uniform rows, with aÂ schoolgirl being removed from class last weekÂ for her â€œtoo shortâ€ trousers.
