Pupil Lauren Owen punished by school over wrong shoes

Schools must consider the financial situation of families after a teenage pupil was punished for wearing the wrong shoes, an AM has said.

It follows the case of a Wrexham pupil who was made to study in a "cupboard" for wearing the wrong shoes while her mother was waiting to be paid.

Llyr Gruffydd said children should not be punished at school if families cannot afford the right clothes.

The Welsh government said uniform policy was a matter for the school.
