Primary school bans children, teachers and visitors from wearing shoes

A primary school has introduced a shoe ban for kids and teachers.

Bosses at the 450-pupil Torriano School in Kentish Town, north London, say it wants its pupils and staff to follow the ‘Scandinavian’ model in which shoes are not allowed in class.

The new policy has so far been introduced to children in reception and nursery as well as Year 4 classes, aged between 8-9, with kids told to leave their shoes at the school door.

The school encourages kids to bring slippers to class instead of shoes, and has a supply of ‘spare socks’ for kids who want them – and visitors will also be asked to leave their shoes outside classrooms.

Headteacher Helen Bruckdorfer told the Camden New Journal newspaper the policy had a ‘calming effect’ on kids at the school, which is rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted.
