A Nailsea student has called off her charity headshave because it is against school rules.

Nailsea School student Fran Bell challenged her friends on Facebook to give her 200 likes and she would get her head shaved for cancer charities.

Fran intended to let fellow student Alex Porter, aged 15, shave her head at Arcadia Hair Designs in the town centre on Saturday – a day before her 15th birthday.

But when teachers found out about the plans Fran was referred to school rules

These say: "If students arrive inappropriately dressed for school, they will in the first instance, be spoken to by their tutors and, if necessary, by their Head of House. We reserve the right to send home any student whose clothing, hairstyle or personal appearance is inappropriate for school."

Wearing a brightly-coloured woollen bobble hat to cover a bald head in the winter months with the weather turning colder didn't wasn't deemed appropriate or sensible by teachers at the Mizzymead Road comprehensive which has a strict dresscode.

And Fran's mum Chris wasn't too keen on the plan either.

Fran said: "My mum thought I was crazy."

The caring teenager had promises of nearly £300 in sponsorship for Macmillan Cancer Support and CLIC Sargent.

Fran added: "I am not going to break school rules but perhaps I will think of another stunt to raise money."
