Dear Parent/Carer, 

I am writing to inform you of an update to the school uniform that will be introduced from this September. This letter is to give you advance warning of this change and to ensure that if you are buying items of school uniform between now and the start of the new academic year that you are aware of the new requirements. 

 

The change is being introduced to improve the current standard of uniform being worn by students in the school. There are currently too many of our students taking too wide an interpretation of what constitutes acceptable black school trousers, jumpers and black shoes and from conversations with several parents I am keen to eliminate any potential ambiguity on this, especially relating to students wearing black jeans style trousers to the school. 

 

This change will ensure smarter standards of appearance from our students and crucially will mean that valuable staff time is not spent dealing with issues relating to problems with school uniform. From conversations with parents I know many of you will welcome the clarity over what constitutes the correct uniform and where to purchase this.

 

The change we are making is that we are introducing standardised school trousers and a standardised school skirt as part of our school uniform. These will be sold by Constructiv clothing who also stock our other items of school uniform. 

 

Below is an updated version of the school uniform policy that has been considered and agreed upon with staff and school Governors;

 

It’s expected that pupils have all of the following items with them each day; 

 

Boys
· Black tailored trousers* (no denim jeans, chinos, jeggings or leggings)

· White shirt*

· Purple school tie*

· Grey school jumper/cardigan* (a school hoody/hoody isn’t a school jumper) 

· Smart black shoes (leather or faux leather – no trainers or pumps)

· Black socks

· No jewellery (piercings - studs in the ears only)

· No make-up

· Natural hair colour only

Girls
· Black tailored trousers* (no denim jeans, chinos, jeggings or leggings)

o or straight black skirt to the knee* with opaque tights

· White shirt*

· Purple school tie*

· Grey school jumper/cardigan* (a school hoody/hoody isn’t a school jumper) 

· Smart black shoes (leather or faux leather – no trainers or pumps)

· Black socks

· No jewellery (piercings - studs in the ears only)

· No make-up

· Natural hair colour only

*These items should be purchased from the website below;  http://www.constructiv.co.uk/shop/categories.asp  

 

I hope that the advanced notice of this new requirement will enable you to plan your uniform purchases for the new academic year. 

 

Thank you in advance for your co-operation in this matter and for your support for the standards we wish to uphold as a school. 

 

Yours faithfully,

 

Mr Dafydd M B Jones

Headmaster
