Liam Scholes is said to have received a dressing down from teachers at Sale High School for the outift, which included cable ties and an eye mask
A schoolboy was ‘excluded’ from World Book Day celebrations after turning up for lessons in a Fifty Shades of Grey costume.
Liam Scholes, 11, arrived at Sale High School dressed as Christian Grey – wearing a suit and carrying cable ties and an eye mask.
Mum Nicola Scholes, 36, said she received a call from teachers saying the costume was inappropriate and he would not be allowed to participate in themed events and a class photograph.
Nicola, a primary school teacher, said the costume was no worse than others depicting fictional serial killers and violent characters.
She said: “We thought it was funny. We were walking home from school and he had the idea of going as Christian Grey.
“At first we laughed it off but the we discussed it with a few friends and saw the funny side and decided it was quite a good costume idea.
“He went in a suit and shoes and with an eye mask and cable ties. The cable ties were tiny and not enough to do anything with them. We didn’t think there would be a problem.
“I got a phonecall home from the school saying the outfit was inappropriate and that he had been excluded from taking part or being in any of the photographs.
