Re: More than 400 pupils at a comprehensive school in Aberystwyth were given detention on their first day back for breaking school uniform rules.<br />
The uniform was changed at Ysgol Penglais over the summer, following a consultation.<br />
But a number of parents have complained to the school and some 250 have signed a petition saying the punished pupils were "treated unfairly".<br />
Ceredigion council said a large number of pupils were kept in at break times.<br />
The new uniform was brought in for the start of the new academic year, with the old navy blue pullover and white polo shirt replaced by a grey v-neck jumper, white shirt and a tie. Sixth formers have a similar outfit.<br />
It is compulsory for all pupils in years 7 and 12 to wear the new uniform, with other students being given the rest of the year to buy it.<br />
This was outlined in correspondence sent to all parents over the summer months, which also stipulated what trousers, skirts and shoes would be deemed acceptable.<br />
But the petition said the new rules were not clear enough and that the pupils should not have been punished for their parents' mistakes.<br />
It also said a warning should have been given before the detention.
