Out of Uniform Procedures

NOTE: The following system is based on students accepting responsibility for wearing the correct uniform and reporting to Rm 13 at lunch 1 if they are not wearing uniform.

  1. Students should bring a note when out of uniform. This should only be under exceptional circumstances.
  2. Every student out of uniform will be recorded when the roll is marked in Connect (with or without a note)
  3. Every student out of uniform MUST report to Rm 13 in lunch 1 to receive a 1 day uniform pass from a deputy or Head Teacher.
  4. Students without a note from home will be required to stay in Rm 13.
  5. If a student does not have a uniform pass after Lunch 1, they will be referred to a deputy and given an executive detention.
  6. Students who are continually out of uniform may be excluded from events such as school representation and non-compulsory curriculum activities. It will also be recorded on school reports.
  7. Students are required to show their current uniform pass to any teacher that requests it.
