Mum kicks off after daughter, 12 given school detention for wearing fake tan

A mum claims her daughter has been singled out because she was spotted wearing fake tan at school.

Natalie White said her daughter wearing fake fan is expected due to her being a keen dancer who competes over the weekend. Her 12 year old daughter, Bella Granata, wears it frequently and cannot be expected to scrub it all off in time, according to Natalie.

While Bella hasn’t faced discrimination before, she was reportedly issued detention recently when a teacher noticed her hands had the remnants of fake tan still on them. Apparently pupils at Whitworth Community High School near Lancaster singled out pupils who attended Bella’s dancing school.

The school principal offered a solution in which a list of pupils dancing with their competitions was given to the school so they could have a leniency period. However, according to Natalie, everyone on the list was picked out and given the same reprimands alongside her daughter.

Natalie spoke to the LancsLive: “She’s been dancing for several years and they compete every couple of weekends. It’s been known at school that all these kids do dancing. She’s going out, she’s exercising as part of the dancing. All the kids are off the streets and doing something, you’d think the school would be more supportive. But they’re not listening. They’re not promoting extra-curricular activities.”

The mothers of the affected children have reportedly tried reaching out to the school but have not had a response. They feel as if the school received the list and started singling out the names of the children who are competing.

Natalie added: “They wouldn’t punish kids who’ve been boxing and come in with a black eye. It’s unfair. It’s obscene. Other kids at other schools aren’t getting punished. It’s disgusting.”

She also reassured that the fake tan usually comes off naturally in the early week, but on Mondays it can be visible due to their competitions over the weekend.

A spokesperson for the school said: ‘The use of fake tan is not allowed in school, as per our school uniform policy. We have recently reminded parents of the rules around fake tan and asked that any fake tan applied over the weekend for extracurricular activities is washed off before returning to school.’

“A student who attends school with fake tan fully applied receives a sanction in line with our school policies, and letters are issued reminding parents/carers of our policy regarding fake tan.”
