Uniform Guidance – July 2023

If a student is not wearing the correct uniform, it is important this is sorted at the earliest opportunity. The table below shows how different issues are addressed. Where possible, we have a stock of clean, nearly new, spare/loan items to help students and families to meet our uniform expectations while their uniform is corrected. If your child does not have the correct uniform please write a note for them explaining the situation and saying when it will be corrected (e.g. sole fallen off shoes, buying new ones tonight). All teachers monitor uniform on a daily basis and contact home when concerns arise.
