School Uniform

Uniform

A school is frequently judged by the appearance of its students and its reputation is a powerful factor in their future success or failure. Please check that your child leaves the house properly dressed in the morning. We shall notify you first if there is any modification to the published uniform.
     
We believe that a smart and distinctive school uniform helps discipline and makes students aware of being part of a community. Long term, it is both practical and economical. It is hoped that you will support this view and encourage your child to do so.  Please be aware that he Headteacher’s decision on all matters regarding uniform and hairstyles is final and fully supported by the Governing Body.
 
Key Uniform Rules:
 
ALL CLOTHING AND PERSONAL BELONGINGS should be marked clearly with the owner's name.
  • BLAZERS – All students must wear a blazer at all times inside the school premises, unless they have been given permission by a member of staff to remove their blazer.  The school jumper is another additional item of clothing students can wear.  The school jumper must be black and must be a V-neck.  Tracksuit tops, Hoodies and Sweatshirts are not allowed in school.  
  • SCHOOL SKIRTS  - Any girl wishing to wear a skirt must wear the Woodrush school skirt with a small green “W” above the hem. Girls may also wear black loose fitting trousers of suit material (ie not stretch/lycra/jean material).  Any visible appendages (i.e. gold zips) or logos on trousers are not allowed.  
  • MAKE-UP - In Key Stages 4 and 5 (Years 10, 11, 12 and 13) this should be appropriate to a professional working environment.  Make-up should not be worn in Key Stage 3 (Years 8 and 9).
  • JEWELLERY - One plain sleeper or stud in each ear lobe is permitted, no hoops/long earrings for health and safety reasons.   No other visible body piercing is allowed.   One ring per hand is allowed.   Other jewellery is not allowed for safety and security reasons.
  • HAIRSTYLES – Should be appropriate to a professional working environment e.g. no extreme styles or colours and no brightly coloured braiding.
  • SHOES - Sensible flat shoes (not trainers, canvas/deck shoes or boots) are required for students, bearing in mind the staircases, carpeted areas and the need to negotiate outdoor pathways in inclement weather.   Students wearing open-toed or high-heeled shoes will not be able to work in laboratories or technology rooms.   Shoes will be plain, black and polishable.  Trainers of any description are not permitted, even if they are black and close in style to that of a shoe.  
  • SCHOOL BAGS - A suitable bag should be used for school books.  The British Medical Association recommends bags with two shoulder straps e.g. rucksacks.  All students should have a pencil case containing a blue or black pen, a pencil, a ruler, a rubber, a pencil sharpener and coloured crayons.  All students must also be in possession of a calculator.  Other specific items of equipment may be required for subjects such as Mathematics and Modern Languages.  Students will be informed by the appropriate teachers.
