Currently we have adopted a no school uniform policy. Although there are many advantages to having a school uniform, we have considered the expense of having to provide a different uniform, in particular if a student is joining the school for a limited amount of time. In addition to this, our students’ feedback that they prefer to wear their own clothes. When considering some of the difficulties our students face, our uniform policy reflects the holistic approach in our curriculum and behaviour expectations.
However, it is an expectation that students wear appropriate clothing at all times. The vast majority of body parts need to be covered, outside coats/jackets should not be worn in school; and students should wear suitable footwear as they will have PE and Forest Schools regularly e.g. not sliders. Discussions on uniform will be made at Pre-Admissions Meetings. The Head of School has the right to discuss clothes with parents/carers and students on an individual basis if they are not deemed suitable and appropriate.
