Uniform Policy

Ss JOHN FISHER & THOMAS MORE RC HIGH SCHOOL

UNIFORM STATEMENT

The wearing of correct uniform is compulsory for all pupils at this school. It is recognised that an agreed standard of dress is an important and useful way of helping to build a sense of community and belonging. Not only does the uniform serve to identify individuals as members of our school, it also assists in the development of a culture based upon the principles of loyalty, service and respect for others. The positive benefits of school uniform are widely recognised and play a significant role within the set of values and attitudes to which, as a school, we are committed.

Form Tutors regularly check their students to ensure that all the uniform regulations are being adhered to. Any deviation from the requirements should be explained by a parental/carer note with an indication given of when the situation will be rectified.

Pupil Progress Leaders and members of the Senior Leadership Team will constantly monitor the overall standard of uniform and if necessary will take action to uphold the school standard of dress /appearance.

A committee of Governors and teachers will review the uniform requirements on an annual basis to ensure that they are clear, practical and conform to current legislation and guidelines pertaining to equality of opportunity.
