Appearance

It is expected that all students take a pride in their uniform and are well presented at all times. Students are issued with a Uniform Card each half term which they must carry with them. This Uniform Card system enables the issue of appropriate sanctions to students who fail to maintain the required standard of appearance.

Hair colour and style must be appropriate for school. If the length of the hair falls below the collar it must be tied back with a plain black bobble. Long fringes must also be held back with a plain black bobble. If in doubt ask for guidance. To maintain a high standard of appearance during the day students are not permitted to wear outer garments/coats in the building. Hooded garments are not allowed to be worn.

Jewellery, Laser Pens and Mobile Phones

Jewellery of any kind, including earrings are not to be brought to school. Laser pens are not permitted in school. Any jewellery or laser pens will be confiscated and returned on receipt of a note from a parent.

Since we recognise the need for students and parents to contact each other at short notice on occasions, students are permitted to carry mobile phones but they must not be used whilst on the school site. Students who break this rule will have their phone confiscated and returned on receipt of a note from a parent. We insist that any messages or enquiries from parents are made through the school office, using the usual land lines, whilst students are on site.

Loss of Personal Property

The Governors do not accept responsibility for the loss of, or damage to, personal property including bicycles on school premises. Every reasonable care will be taken by the school to ensure the safety of students’ property.
