I was wondering if I could have some advice/ your opinions about my son. He'll be starting Y11 soon but last year had problems regarding school uniform policy. He is quite 'advanced' for his age and grew a beard, the headteacher has told him he needs to shave every day or he will be placed in the 'quiet room' or excluded. My son has pointed out other students who have previously grown beards and that it is not part of the school policy. My son has become very stubborn on this matter, I've explained that it is part of growing up but he sees it as his 'right.'
