School Uniform Expectations


School uniform

As of Monday 11th December 2017, any student wearing trainers will receive an hour catch up with SLT immediately after school.

This will happen every time a student is spotted wearing trainers when not in a PE lesson.

A text will be sent to inform parents/carers that the student was not in full school uniform.

A Pastoral Manager will also contact home to find out why the student is not wearing school shoes.

Students will require a medical exemption to wear trainers during non-PE lessons; If this is the case, a letter must be brought in from home explaining why you cannot wear shoes and presented to your child’s Pastoral Manager.

We expect all students to wear their uniform, be smart and presentable, both when on the school premises and when representing the school off site.
