It is our school policy that all children wear school uniform when attending school, representing the school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours, unless the activity involves wearing specific clothing for health and safety reasons.
Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:
On health and safety grounds we do not allow children to wear jewellery in our school. The exceptions to this rule are single earring studs in pierced ears, and small objects of religious significance. We ask the children to remove these objects during PE and games, to prevent them from causing injury to themselves or others. If your child cannot independently remove earrings, we ask that they are removed at home on the day that they have PE. Tape is no longer considered a measure to minimise accidents. Makeup, including nail polish is not permitted in school.
Extreme hairstyles are not permitted – this includes tramlines or markings etched into the hair and coloured hair dyes. Long hair must be tied back. Large hair accessories are not permitted.
We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support the school uniform policy. We believe that parents have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork. One of the responsibilities of parents is to ensure that their child has the correct uniform, and that it is clean and in good repair.
All pupils are expected to wear our school uniform every day that they attend school. All pupils who arrive at school without appropriate uniform will be given a letter to bring home to parents. We ask that you support us in this matter.
