We expect all students to comply fully with our uniform policy. Students uniform will be checked by staff as they arrive to school.

The final decision as to whether a student’s appearance is appropriate or not rests with the school. Any student who fails to wear appropriate school uniform will have a consequence from those outlined below:

•   Students who do not come in correct footwear may be sent home to rectify this (in accordance with DfE guidance) and must return to school immediately (parents will be notified of this by a member of SLT as well as an agreed time for when they are expected to return). This will not count as an exclusion but will be coded as an authorised absence until they return at the specified time.
•   Students in incorrect uniform that they can rectify at school will be sent to our uniform store to do this and receive a C1 (same night detention) for 30 minutes
•   If a student can rectify their uniform but they refuse to do this, they will receive a C4 isolation day.
•   If a student has to rectify their uniform, the item that has had to be changed will be confiscated until the end of the day.
