Uniform Policy

Students Uniform
As a school, we firmly believe that our school uniform at both Key Stage 3 and 4 plays a valuable role in contributing to our ethos and setting an appropriate tone that supports effective teaching and learning. Working with students, we have made a lot of progress towards achieving the consistent appearance of students in uniform across both key stages, and we are keen to maintain this. Therefore all students should wear the specified school uniform below with names clearly marked on each item.

However, should the student choose not to remove the offending item or accept an alternative form of footwear, an automatic C4 Isolation will be issued. This may also apply to other issues relating to incorrect uniforms.

In cases where jewellery, caps, hooded tops or MP3 players etc., are worn, these will be confiscated, a communication sent home, and the item(s) held in the main office until an acknowledgement is received from a parent/carer before being returned. However, in the case of persistent confiscation of any item(s), a parent/ carer will be informed and asked to collect in person.

Students must accept responsibility for their own personal possessions and equipment whilst on the school site. Please avoid bringing valuable items into school.

The school will not be held responsible for any item of uniform or equipment lost or stolen in school.
