Non uniform day – Expectations

Non uniform days mean students are able to swap their normal school wear for their own clothes in return for an agreed amount.  To enable this to continue its important we a clear about what the expectations around these non-uniform days are. 

Please look closely at the below expectations of behaviour, dress an equipment:

  • Behaviour - The school expectations in terms of all aspects of behaviour remain exactly the same as normal school days.  Student need to conduct themselves in line with the school policies. Planner comments, SFS and pre exclusion referrals will operate in the same way as usual.
  • Equipment – students must have all their equipment with them. This includes:
    • Pen / pencil / ruler etc
    • Planner
    • Bag
    • PE Kit – if they have PE
  • Clothing -  this is an opportunity for students to wear their non-school clothes but the following expectations apply and must be followed:
    • External jackets/coats must be removed inside the building. Hoodies, sweatshirts, and light jackets may be worn inside the building however if a member of staff asks for a jacket/coat to be removed this MUST be removed without argument.
    • All hoods on hoodies must remain down on school grounds.
    • All hats and gloves must be removed inside the school building
  • Clothing must be appropriate for a school environment - this means NO
    • Bare tummy’s
    • Low cut tops
    • Strappy vests
    • Excessively ripped jeans or trouser
