Uniform changes from September 2018
Current Year 9, along with the incoming Year 7, are moving into the new uniform in September 2018 which will comprise of a school green v neck jumper, a house tie and a standard white shirt. Our PE kit remains the same. The rest of the school will make the transition to the new uniform in time for the start of the 2019/20 academic year. Students in other year groups may choose to wear the uniform during the next academic year if they wish.
Students need to recognise school as a place of work and one that has a place in the wider community, therefore, a dress code is expected as in most places of professional work. The current dress code expects students to be clean, smart and tidy.
In line with guidance published in October 2007, the governors have satisfied themselves that our school uniform is fair, reasonable, affordable and does not act as a barrier to parents when choosing the school. At least two suppliers will be appointed to avoid restricted competition.
Although every reasonable care is taken, the school cannot be responsible for personal property and possessions brought into school. It would, therefore, be helpful if the following was noted:-
(a) Pupils should keep their property in a strong bag/holdall/backpack.
(b) All items should be clearly marked with the child's name
(c) iPods, cameras and other valuable possessions should not be brought into school.
(d) Mobile phones are a particular nuisance and are not necessary in school. We have a telephone available for students should they need to contact home. Please support us by making sure that your son or daughter does not bring a mobile phone to school.
