Dress codes aren't an uncommon thing. That's the only way this makes any sense.
It appears this school does have a dress code of some sorts but kids are getting around it with other things like Coats, and backpacks and such. Crazy.
Two years ago, it introduced a compulsory school bag to reduce costs, after parents complained that their children were demanding branded rucksacks.
Also a dress code prevents bullying , and materialism
While it is certainly true that many bullies act like chickens that peck the one in the flock with a feather that sticks up, most don't need the feather to help them find a victim. There is no shortage of "reasons" that victims are selected to be bullied. They could be small or large; they could have high marks or low marks; they could be poor or wealthy; they could be gay or straight; they could be religious or secular; they could be sexually active or virgins. The list goes on, but in short, virtually any characteristic or criterion will suffice if a bully is intent on finding a victim.

I had # clothes as a kid, hand-me-downs from my older brothers, I was the tallest so my Mam would turn trousers up and the turn them down for me, you could always see the line. I learnt how to fight by age 10 or 11 because of bullying.
School years were #, girls were the most cruel because they couldn't be hit.
