Uniform and Appearance of Year 7

Uniform and Appearance Code

Cost of Uniform
We want to ensure that the cost of the uniform does not deter any pupil from applying to the school.
The uniform suppliers, costs and quality have been reviewed to ensure the best value.
Many of the items can be bought on the high street. We operate a recycled uniform shop where parents can buy donated items of uniform. Pupils in receipt of Pupil Premium may apply to have the costs of their uniform reimbursed.

Enforcement of Uniform
Parents have a responsibility to ensure that their daughter comes to school in the correct uniform. 
All staff have a responsibility for ensuring that students are correctly dressed in class and elsewhere in school.
For uniform and appearance infringements, pupils are given penalty points and may be placed in a lunchtime or after-school detention. Items may also be confiscated and parents contacted to collect them.

Appearance Code
Earrings are not allowed.  Plasters over earrings are not acceptable.  No nose studs or any type of body piercing is permitted.  Piercings of the ear’s cartilages should not be carried out as these take a long period to heal.  If any pupils wish to have their ears pierced they should do so at the beginning of the Summer break, so that there is no need for earrings to be worn in school time  If a pupil is unable to take out their earrings or piercing, they will be placed in lunchtime detentions or the weekly after school detentions.
Make-up is not allowed at Key Stage 3.  At Key Stage 4, a small amount of discreet make-up is permitted, (pupils will be asked to wash off any excessive make-up when in school).
No jewellery is allowed. False nails are not allowed.
Faces should be uncovered. Head scarves should be plain and in navy, black or white.

Hair should be tidy and of one natural tone. Pupils with long hair should have their hair tied back in the interests of hygiene and safety.  Any hair ribbons, slides, must be in school colours (navy and maroon), or black or white, plain, without patterns.
