Prepared and Ready to Learn - Uniform
For the week commencing Monday 5th February, the "prepared and ready to learn" focus will be on
wearing the correct school uniform
During tutor time starting in the week of 5th February, all tutors will be checking to see that students are wearing the correct school uniform. This link gives full details.
We have high expectations for our young people and therefore adhering to our uniform code demonstrates their commitment to being a positive member of the Calthorpe Park community.
Any student identified by their tutor will be spoken to, parents/guardians will be contacted and a date set for the problem to be rectified.
While all aspects of our dress code will be part of the checks, I would like to draw particular attention to the following concerns which seem a little more prevalent at the moment:
Shoes – students are expected to wear black shoes (boots and trainers are not acceptable)
Girls’ skirts – the material should not be ‘elasticated’ and the length is required to be below half way between the hip and the knee
Nail varnish – false nails are not acceptable, nail length should be suitable for the activities undertaken at school (particularly with respect to PE) and any colour should be of a neutral shade. All tutors have nail varnish remover and will ask students to remove unsuitable nail varnish
Jewellery – one discrete earring is permitted in each ear (Years 10 and 11 may wear 2 in each ear), a discrete ring and a delicate necklace. Teachers will be asking students to remove any additional items which will be placed in a small envelope and kept by the student. We will not accept recent piercings as an excuse to ignore our expectations
We ask for your support in ensuring that the items you purchase meet with our uniform code to support your son or daughter with arriving at school each day smartly dressed and ready to learn in a safe and positive manner.
