School Uniform Policy

School Uniform Policy

Introduction

 

It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours. We provide a complete list of the items needed for school uniform in our Parent Handbook.

 

Aims and objectives

Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:

  • ·        promotes a sense of pride in the school;
  • ·        engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school;
  • ·        is practical and smart;
  • ·        identifies the children with the school;
  • ·        prevents children from coming to school in fashion clothes that could be distracting in class;
  • ·        makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
  • ·        is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by most parents;
  • ·        is designed with health and safety in mind.

Arriving at and leaving school

Pupils may not change into other clothes before leaving school, unless a written request has been received from their parent/carer, explaining exceptional circumstances, e.g. dance exam, drama performance, sporting fixture

 

As a school community, we want to work together on the issue of uniform and to encourage all pupils to respect the School’s policy. On the rare occasions when a pupil refuses to comply, then the following sanctions will be used:

 

Sanctions

 

On the first occasion that a pupil is found to be breaking the School Dress Code a verbal warning from the Form or Class Teacher will be administered, and a written slip will be sent home to parents to inform them that their child was inappropriately dressed.  Parents will be asked to acknowledge the letter by returning a written slip to school.

A record of this will be kept on file

On the second occasion that a pupil is found to be breaking the School Dress Code the pupil will be put in detention. A letter will be sent to parents informing them of the infraction of the School Dress Code. 

A record of this will be kept on file

On the third occasion that a pupil is found to be breaking the School Dress Code in any half term, parents will be required to attend a meeting with the Headteacher.

A record of this will be kept on file, and any further breaches of the uniform policy will result in an immediate detention with the possibility of further disciplinary action.

   

The role of governors

Governors ensure that the School Uniform Policy helps children to dress sensibly, in clothing that is hardwearing, safe and practical and meets all regulations concerning equal opportunities. The Governing Body supports the Headteacher in implementing the School Uniform Policy.
