We are proud of our uniform which helps to create a purposeful atmosphere. We expect all students to wear the correct uniform at all times. We encourage students to take responsibility for ensuring they come to school dressed in a tidy and neat manner.

Hair colour and style must be appropriate and of an acceptable standard for school. Students should check with their Progress Leader if in doubt. Extreme hair colour and styles will not be permitted.

For safety reasons, students may only wear one stud earring in each ear no other jewellery may be worn and other body piercings will not be allowed. We also request that no child uses nail varnish or has false nails that are coloured and that no make up is worn.
