T-shirts and shorts must have no slogans or logos except the school logo.||Overalls will be provided by the school.|
- School logo sweatshirts and T-shirts are available from school at a very reasonable cost and a top with the school logo on must be worn in school at all times. The school banned the wearing of hooded sweatshirts in 2015 as they are often used as a way of ignoring social interaction or as a barrier to effective communication. Students wearing a hooded sweatshirt or jacket will be asked to remove it.
- Trousers, jeans or jogging bottoms are acceptable for wear but these must be appropriate for the student’s likely/timetabled activities.
- Importantly, students’ clothing should be comfortable but practical. Students should bring soft soled shoes or slippers to wear inside school.
- The school understands that some students bring their mobile phones and mp3 players to use in the transport. However, for legal safeguarding reasons, these must be switched off and handed in at the main office before morning registration, where they will be kept securely until the end of the day. The school accepts no responsibility for any damage or loss of such items.
Parents/carers, please note: Students who refuse to follow the school’s uniform policy will be offered the opportunity to change into spare uniform on arrival in school. If they do not, you may be asked to bring their uniform into school for them or collect them from school. For safety reasons, students will not be allowed off school premises on trips or activities if they are not wearing correct uniform.
NB: The school accepts no responsibility for any jewellery items brought into school as these should not be worn for health and safety reasons. Students may wear a watch if they wish but it is their own responsibility and must be removed for PE and other practical activities.
