School Dress Code
Our guidelines are based on suitable dress and are at the discretion of the Headteacher, who has overall responsibility of maintaining standards throughout the school.
we impress upon our children the value of looking neat and smart at school. Our expectations are that all children will wear clothing that is in keeping with a purposeful learning ethos. Our expectations are based on the belief that a school uniform:
- promotes a sense of pride in our school
- engenders a feeling of belonging
- is practical and distinctive
- identifies the children with the school
- is not distracting in class
- makes children feel equal to one another in terms of appearance
- is affordable
- is flexible and offers choice
The uniform is listed below. While the jumper is branded, if need be this can be purchased without branding. All other items of uniform can be purchased at a variety of supermarkets, online shops or high street stores.
We appreciate that the cost of school uniform can sometimes be high, and so the school will hold second hand uniform sales throughout the year, particularly in the Summer Term. We also ask departing students if they have any good quality uniform which can be donated back to the school.
Hairstyles should be sensible, with no lines, patterns or hair-dye. No jewellery should be worn, with the exception of a watch, apart from plain stud earrings – maximum one per ear. Nail Varnish is not permitted.
As staff are not permitted to remove or replace earrings under the Health and Safety Regulations, it is essential that all children wearing stud earrings are able to take them out and replace them themselves. If a watch and earrings are worn to school, we will endeavour to safeguard them but the responsibility for their safe keeping rests with their owner i.e. the child.
If you are having difficulty with any aspect of the school uniform, please contact the school to discuss this.
We follow the DfE guidance on uniforms.
