Encouraging excellence, valuing people

Uniform

First impressions are important and at South Charnwood High School we encourage pupils to take pride in their appearance and to show a readiness for work at all times. Pupils should come to school cleanly and smartly dressed. Discussion with parents/carers, pupils and governors has led to the adoption of a practical and attractive style of school wear. We expect all parents/carers to support this. 

For ALL pupils

Make-up, including nail varnish and jewellery should not be worn in school. If it is noticed by a member of staff the pupil will be asked to remove it and may receive a detention.  Those pupils with pierced ears may wear small sleepers or studs, but these must be removed during P.E. lessons. No necklaces or bracelets, (other than for religious observance).

 

Governors expect that pupils will conform to this dress code each day and every day. When circumstances make it impossible to conform, parents/carers are asked to write a brief note of explanation for the pupil's form tutor. If the rules on uniform are not followed, a letter will be sent home to parents and the pupil will be issued with a consequence.

 

All PE kit must be marked with your child's name and tutor group
