Pupils with incorrect uniform or incomplete equipment

Parents / carers should provide a dated note for their son/daughter to bring to school to explain why any item of uniform is not worn due to reasons beyond their control. The school will endeavour to issue a temporary replacement item from our second hand stock which must be returned in good condition at the end of the school day.
