Uniform Letter 17.07.2020

17 July 2020

Dear Parents/Carers

Uniform for next year – September 2020

We are writing to make sure you are all aware of our uniform expectations for September. With the six weeks off this is an ideal opportunity to make sure all learners own correct uniform and are ready to get into lessons learning after having so much time out of school.

To ensure we have the best relationship with learners we expect learners to be ready for lessons in the correct uniform so that our efforts can be focussed on teaching and learning and building positive relations with learners rather than persistent questioning about incorrect uniform.

The biggest change next year is that when learners have PE they must wear the HHS Logo tracksuit bottoms and the HHS Logo training top. It is optional for them to wear the HHS Logo tracksuit top and shorts. They will be wearing this all day as learners are not allowed into a confined changing room to change between uniform and PE kit. If learners are not in the HHS PE kit, as explained, they will be sent home to change into school uniform.

The full uniform details is listed below:

Compulsory School uniform
