Whilst welcoming all learners back to school, I wish to remind you about the rules relating to school uniform. During the winter months whilst we appreciate that it is important to dress according to the impending weather changes, the school will not allow the uniform rules to be flouted and the consequences of such will be that the learner may be sent home accordingly to change into the appropriate attire.
Ankle boots may be worn but the heel should be flat, must be smart and made of a fabric such as leather or PVC that can be polished (as with a normal school shoe). If other types of boots are worn, sanctions will apply as current practice dictates for uniform infringements.
Plain black shoes must be of an appropriate design for school. Canvas shoes such as Vans shoes are not permitted as well as coloured laces, trainers or Nike Airforce.
Thank you to the majority of learners who arrive at school each day looking smart in the correct uniform:
- Navy blazer with school logo – this must be worn at all times
- School tie – pulled up to the collar
- White plain shirt – buttoned to the neck.
- Plain smart grey/black trousers for boys and girls
- Jeans, cargo pants, leggings or tight school trousers are not acceptable.
- Grey/black skirt for girls
- Skirts should be loose fitting, not figure hugging and the length be between the knee and ankle
- Plain black, navy or flesh coloured tights only
- Plain black shoes of an appropriate design for school.
- V-neck jumper or waist length cardigan in plain navy or plain black are optional and do not replace the need to wear a blazer.
- Black or blue socks or white ankle socks
- Over the knee socks are not acceptable
- Headscarves – plain navy, black or white
- All hair clips, bands etc should be plain, in navy, black or white
- Plain dark coat. (this can only be worn over a blazer)
In summer a navy blue school polo shirt (blazer and tie not required) Learners will be told when this may be worn.
Only one item of religious jewellery and/or a pair of stud earrings may be worn in school.
Many thanks for your continued support of the school.
Mr P Gamble
