First impressions matter and our school is judged on the appearance as well as the behaviour of our students. The uniform code promotes safety, decency and equality. It is important that we work together to maintain our standards and uniform is checked frequently to ensure it is worn correctly. The uniform is easy to purchase from the mail order catalogue provided. However, parents are free to purchase from the uniform shop, Identity Kits, in Wells.

Legal ClarificationThe Uniform and Appearance Policy has the same status in law as our School Rules and Expectations.
DCSF guidance, which was clarified in January 2007, makes it clear that sending a child home to correct uniform is perfectly acceptable. This will be recorded as authorised absence. However if a child stays off for longer than needed to correct their uniform or appearance this will be recorded as unauthorised absence.
Uniform issues are dealt with as follows:
A teacher, or adult working alongside the teacher, may confiscate mobile phones, IPODs and any item that is causing a distraction in a classroom or an item of clothing or jewellery that is not part of school uniform. This is within the law but items will be returned.
Confiscated items will be stored in School Office and can be collected by student at the end of the day if a first offence; or by parents for subsequent incidents.
Lost PropertyAll named uniform and kit is returned immediately it is handed into the office to the student concerned – (hence the importance of ensuring that all uniform is clearly named).
Lost Property is held by the school office for one full term. It is then displayed in the foyer for students and parents to view. Any unclaimed items are then donated to charity.
