Friday Bulletin & Diary Dates – 21st September 2018

21 September 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

I have noticed, in the last week or so, that not all children are adhering to our uniform policy. Our policy is based on the belief that a school uniform:

  • promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • engenders a feeling of community and belonging
  • supports positive behaviour and discipline
  • is suitable, practical and smart
  • makes pupils feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance
  • prevents pupils coming to school in fashion or ‘designer’ label clothes that could be distracting in class or create a sense of competition

The main issues I have noticed are addressed in the reminders below:

  • School shoes, trainers or boots should be plain black with no visible logos
  • Children should wear a red sweatshirt, cardigan or tank-top, preferably with school logo
  • Plain white PE t-shirt (with or without school logo but no other logos)
  • Black PE shorts (no logo)
  • Short hair should be no shorter than a ‘No 2’ and should not have ‘fashion’ markings shaved into it (e.g. tram-lines).


Thank you for your support with this.

Have a great weekend.


Yours sincerely,

Mrs A Whistler
