Please note that the school accepts some variations to school uniform that are required by religious and cultural norms (eg headscraves).  All uniform should be clearly marked with the student’s name.

The uniform should be clean and in good repair.  It should be worn smartly and conventionally.  Students who, without good reason, fail to wear the school uniform correctly will attract a sanction.  If temporarily unable to wear full school uniform, students must provide a dated letter of explanation from a parent or carer.  Such letters will normally receive sympathetic consideration.  This does not negate the Headteacher’s right to expect students to wear school shoes or to send a student home if the reason is judged to be unacceptable.

PE Kit:


Jewellery: No jewellery is to be worn with the exception of one pair of plain studs for students with pierced ears, a single ring and a watch.
Please note:  We discourage the wearing of jewellery for reasons of safety – studs, if worn, must be removed for Physical Education.  Other forms of body piercing are inappropriate and unacceptable.  Nose studs, lip and tongue rings and studs, and naval piercing jewellery are banned.  Persistent disregard for this rule may result in an exclusion.

 

Equipment:  Full equipment is compulsory
Ensure that you are properly equipped!

  You must bring each day:
• A bag large enough to carry books, equipment and PE/Games kit.
• Your student planner.
• Pens, pencils, ruler and eraser as a minimum.
• Pencil crayons, sharpener and felt tips.
• Calculator and basic geometrical instruments (useful for mathematics, science and technology).
• PE/Games kit as specified by teaching staff.  Remember that PE/Games Kit is part of the school uniform and also essential subject equipment.

Mobile Phones, MP3 Players and other electronic devices

School takes no responsibility for loss or theft of such items.  Students who bring these devices into school must ensure they are switched off and in their bags during lesson time.  Anyone using these devices during lessons will have them confiscated and ONLY returned to a parent or carer.
