Uniform and equipment for school

Introduction

At St Peters School, we believe strongly that a school uniform plays a valuable role in contributing positively to the school ethos. We also believe that, a uniform protects the pupils from social pressures to dress in a particular way and more importantly, it nurtures cohesion and ensures that all pupils from different races and background feel welcome. The school uniform policy was developed by Shirley Sowray Early Years School Governor and was agreed by Kate McEvoy Head Teacher and the board of school governors. The policy was approved and ratified by the Governing Body during the summer term 2013 and it will take on effect from September 2013.

 

Aims

With the guidance from this policy we aim to :

  • Ensure that within our school we wish to positively promote an atmosphere which encourages effort, enjoyment, and a celebration of the achievements of all our pupils.
  • To maintain feelings of pride, a sense of belonging and to enable all pupils to relate to their school/learning identity.
  • To engender a sense of community and to promote equality to their peers of all pupils.
  • Our uniform is based on good value for money and is smart and practical.
  • Our School uniform policy in underpinned by health and safety aspects and ensures pupil comfort.

Due to safety reasons it is preferred that earring studs are not worn on PE/swimming days. Any other piercings are not permitted in school. Tattoos are also not permitted in school.

Role of the Head Teacher and Governing Body

  • The head teacher has a role for ensuring and monitoring that all pupils comply with the uniform policy.
  • The Governing Body, along with the Head Teacher, should be receptive and supportive to any reasonable complaint from parents/carers concerning uniform. They also have a duty to handle this complaint with high regard and respect, considering fairly the issues rose. Governors should work in partnership with parents/carers to arrive at a mutually acceptable outcome.
  • Both the Head Teacher and the Governing Body will follow the DfES guidelines on school uniform.

 

Role of the Class Teachers and Support Staff

  • Set a good example in terms of dress
  • Assist the Head Teacher in ensuring and monitoring that all pupils comply with the uniform policy.

Racial Equality and Equal Opprtunity

All pupils have the right to equal access to wearing the school uniform regardless of their culture, race, religion, gender, disability or ability. We ensure that our school uniform respects other policies such as Race Relations, Sex Discriminations and Human Rights. In fulfilling its obligations to the above, the school may have good reason for restricting the individual’s freedoms/choices, to ensure effective teaching, the promotion of cohesion, and the prevention of bullying or genuine health and safety or security promotion.
