Thank you to all our students and parents for ensuring that our high standards of uniform are maintained. I would like to draw your attention to the Department for Education's guidance that allows us to ensure all our students are compliant.

"Teachers can discipline pupils for breaching the school's rules on appearance or uniform. This should be carried out in accordance with the school's published behaviour policy."

"A head teacher, or a person authorised by the head teacher, may ask a pupil to go home briefly to remedy a breach of the school's rules on uniform."

"This is not an exclusion but an authorised absence. However, if a pupil continues to breach uniform rules in such a way as to be sent home to avoid school, or takes long than is strictly necessary to effect the change, the pupil's absence may be a counted as an unauthorised absence."
