    Hi my son started secondary school a few weeks ago. His school recomends plain black lace up pumps as an alternative to school Shoes. My son wanted to wear pumps as school shoes so i bought him a pair from Primark they only cost £3. How much did you spend on school shoes ??
    His school uniform policy is
    School jumper with school logo
    School polo shirt
    School trousers
    School shoes / plain black canvas pumps

    I'd rather go without food for a week than send my kid to school in pumps.

    Just saying...

    It's really good that you're back on uniform, but it's still a disturbing and unhealthy fixation. You really need to get help with whatever's causing this.
    Unless I say otherwise 'you' means the general you not you specifically.

    £25,999. They are slightly unusual in that they walk him to school themselves, with the built in GPS ensuring the fastest route. It can be awkward when he goes through nearby gardens, but happily they are fitted with a motion sensor designed to kick potential attackers once they come within a dangerous range.


    They're also scuff proof.

    These are no ordinary school shoes. These are M&S school shoes.

    There wouldn't be any point telling you how much they cost

    Pumps rather strange term to use. Usually a US term for ladies shoes, they call them pumps. I'm wearing my high heel pumps today.

    Not used for male shoes, plimsolls,trainers,boots etc.
