It is our policy that all students should wear uniform when attending school or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours.
Our policy on school uniform is based on the philosophy that school uniform:
promotes a sense of pride in the school.
engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school.
is practical and smart.
identifies the students with the school.
prevents students from coming to school in fashion clothes that could be distracting.
makes students feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance.
is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by most parents.
is designed with health and safety in mind.
Each student will be gifted the following items of uniform:
1 x Dark green fleece with school logo
3 x Dark green polo shirts with school logo
The following items will remain in school:
1 x PE T-shirt
1 x PE shorts
1 x PE bag
1 x School towel
1 x Swimming bag
1 x Set of waterproof trousers and jacket
1 x Outdoor work overalls
1 x Water bottle
Parents are asked to provide the following items to be kept in school:
1 x Pair of wellingtons
1 x Pair of training shoes for PE
1 x Swimsuit/swimming trunks
Pupils can wear trousers, joggers, leggings, or shorts in either grey or black.
Pupils can wear either trainers or school shoes.
Parents can either contact the school to purchase additional items of uniform with logos or are free to purchase any dark green items of school uniform from local supermarkets and stores that they wish.
We do not allow students to wear jewellery on health and safety grounds. The exceptions to this rule are simple studs in pierced ears. We ask the student to either remove these during some practical activities or cover them with a plaster to prevent them from causing injury either to themselves or others.
The school welcomes students from all backgrounds and faith communities. If there are reasons, for example on religious grounds, why parents want their child to wear clothes that differ from the school uniform, the school will look sympathetically at such requests.
We ask all parents to support the school uniform policy.
