School Uniform

 

It is the policy of the Education and Cultural Services Committee to encourage children to wear an acceptable form of school dress as determined by Headteachers, Parent Councils and parents.

 

In encouraging the wearing of school dress, account must be taken in any proposals to prevent any direct or indirect discrimination on the grounds of race or gender.  Any proposal will be the subject of widespread consultation with parents and pupils.

 

Under no circumstances will children be deprived of any educational benefit as a result of not wearing uniform.

There are forms of dress which are unacceptable in school, such as items of clothing which:

·         potentially encourage factions (such as football colours);

·         could cause offence (such as anti-religious symbolism or political slogans);

·         could cause health and safety difficulties, such as loose fitting clothing, dangling earrings;

·         are made from flammable material, for example, shell suits in practical classes;

·         could cause damage to flooring;

·         carry advertising, particularly for alcohol or tobacco;

·         could be used to inflict damage on other pupils or be used by others to do so.

      The appropriate clothing and footwear for PE is a t-shirt, shorts and gym shoes with non-marking soles.  Please note there is a requirement that all jewellery is removed prior to undertaking physical education activities.

     

      Please ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled, particularly ties, sweatshirts and PE kit, which are often lost.
