Non-Uniform Days 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 are clear about what the expectations around these non-uniform days are. 

Please look closely at the below expectations of behaviour, dress and 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 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 classrooms. 
    • 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 clothes that expose inappropriate amounts of skin, such as low cut tops, crop tops, or excessively ripped jeans. School will make the decisions on whether clothing is appropriate for a school environment and make a common sense judgment. If students are inappropriately dressed they will be asked to go home to change (with parent consent) or need to remain in Reflection. 

Parents should note that the school carries no insurance for and bears no responsibility for student's personal clothing or equipment unless there is proof of negligence.
