Letter regarding ordering from Thomas Moore

 

Blackpool School Uniform

 

Aims and objectives of our uniform policy

Our policy on school uniform is based on the notion that school uniform:

• promotes a sense of pride in the school;

• engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school;

• is practical and smart;

• identifies the children with the school;

• prevents children from coming to school in fashion clothes that

could be distracting in class;

• makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;

• is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by the 

majority of parents;

• is designed with health and safety in mind.

 

The school has a clearly defined uniform that all the children wear. The uniform is an integral part of the school ethos. As a school we have a logo which is embroidered on our school jumpers and PE T-Shirt. We also have winter hats, summer caps, PE Bags, Book Bags and Coats with our logo on. These items are available for purchase from Thomas Moore in Exeter.

Jewellery and make up

The school has an agreed policy for the wearing of jewellery.

Children may have a maximum of one pair of earrings (studs or sleepers and one in each ear) and may wear a watch (not a SMART watch - any watch that can link with the internet or take photographs etc).

Children will be asked to remove these during PE lessons for health and safety reasons.

If earrings cannot be removed, please provide your child with surgical tape

to cover earrings. 

No other jewellery or accessory is permitted, including bright coloured or large earrings.

Make-up, including nail varnish, should not be worn.

 

Hair

Long hair must be tied back.

Hair accessories should be subtle and no hair braids, large bows etc to be permitted.

No extreme hair cuts (eg less than grade 2 in length, mohawks, tram lines or patterns cut into hair, or colour added to hair).

 

The role of parents

We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support the school uniform policy. We believe that parents have a duty to send their children to school correctly dressed and ready for their daily schoolwork. One of the responsibilities of parents is to ensure that their child has the correct uniform, and that it is clean and in good repair.

If any parent would like the school to modify the uniform policy, they should make representation, in the first instance, to the headteacher. The school welcomes children from all backgrounds and faith communities. If there are serious reasons, for example on religious grounds, why parents want their child to wear clothes that differ from the school uniform, the school will look sympathetically at such requests.

 

NB. The school has used the DfE non-statutory guidance on school uniform and agrees with the guidance given in the DfE booklet which states:

‘The school uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of a school and setting an appropriate tone. The Department strongly encourages schools to have a uniform as it can instil pride; support positive behaviour and discipline; encourage identity with, and support for, schools ethos; ensure pupils of all races and backgrounds feel welcome; protect children from social pressures to dress in a particular way; and nurture cohesion and promote good relations between different groups of pupils. The Department also encourages schools to have a very clear position about appearance such as hair colour, style and length and the wearing of jewellery and make-up.’
