Uniform


The Department for Education strongly encourages schools to have a uniform as it can play a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting an appropriate tone.

We expect all children to wear school uniform. The majority of our uniform is available for you to order from the Uniform and Leirsurewear Company, Common Garden Street, Lancaster. You can also order on the internet by clicking here. The tartan school skirt is only available from the school office.

  • The only jewellery allowed in school is a digital / analogue wrist watch. Key Stage Two children may wear a PAIR of small, plain studs.

  • Please ensure that your child's hair style / colour is appropriate for school. Bright colours, shaven patterns or gelled styles are no suitable for school. Hair past shoulder-length should be tied back.

  • Black shoes with either velcro, buckle or laces.

  • Please label all clothing clearly. Thank you

 

For the 2016 / 2017 Academic year, children may wear any item from the old or new uniform list with a view to the transfer to the new uniform being complete for September 2017. The items of clothing that can be worn are listed below. Any child wearing an item not specified on the list will be considered to be non-compliant.

Pupil non-compliance

Teachers can discipline pupils for breaching the school’s rules on appearance or uniform. This should be carried out in accordance with the school’s published behaviour policy.

A head teacher, or a person authorised by the head teacher, may ask a pupil to go home briefly to remedy a breach of the school’s rules on appearance or uniform. This is not an exclusion but an authorised absence.

Until October half term, should a child be wearing non-compliant uniform, we will send home regular reminders. After half term, we will introduce the policy of calling parents to collect their child and change them into the correct uniform.
