Change to uniform policy (outdoor coats)

Dear parent/carer

Change to uniform policy (outdoor coats).

With pupils’ safety in mind, the school has decided to change its uniform policy, with regards to outdoor coats.

We have previously asked that students’ outdoor coats be a plain, dark coat that opens down the front. However, in order to ensure that pupils are visible, and safe on their journey to and from school, particularly with the darker mornings and nights in mind, we are altering this policy.

Pupils can now wear a coloured coat to school, so that they are more visible to motorists/others. We ask that all coats are plain, with no visible logo or badges, and open down the front.

Pupils who wear coloured coats to school, will be asked to remove them before entering the building.

Best wishes,
Mr Varley (Deputy Headteacher).
