Amnesty on canvas shoes at Uckfield college

Parents are being warned that Uckfield Community Technology College students will be challenged if found wearing canvas shoes in school after the Christmas break.


Canvas shoe – there’s an amnesty for students wearing them at Uckfield Community Technology College until the New Year.

An email from Andrew Wright on behalf of the UCTC staff team about “an outbreak of canvas shoes in all year groups” said: “These aren’t part of our uniform but shoe shops insist on placing them on the shelves with ordinary school shoes which is confusing.

“With the New Year sales coming up we’re asking if parents and carers can resolve the issue of canvas shoes for us by the first day back in January, Tuesday 6th.

“There’s an amnesty on canvas shoes until then, but after that students should expect to be challenged.”
