Uniform

The school’s uniform is specified by the Headteacher and approved by the governors. All pupils are expected to wear the uniform when in school. If for any temporary reason this is not possible, a letter of explanation mus brought in to the form tutor. Please note that persistent offenders may not be able to attend normal lessons and will work separately under the supervision of senior staff. They are also likely to have certain school privileges removed. They may for example, be excluded from attending sporting events or school trips. Pupils who defy instructions from senior staff may be placed in the school unit or excluded from school.
