In addition to our regular checks in uniform we will be doing a gate check from 8am on Monday 1st and Tuesday 2nd February 2016. Our focus will be on shoes as it is clear that some students have reverted to wearing canvas or labelled shoes or trainers, none of which are acceptable footwear for school.
On those days, any student wearing such shoes and unable to provide a note from home indicating when the shoes will be replaced, will serve an after school detention of one hour on that evening. Parents will be informed of this by email or text message. Subsequent to those days, any student wearing such shoes and unable to provide a note from home indicating when the shoes will be replaced will serve an lunchtime detention of twenty minutes.
May I also remind you that jeans-style trousers, i.e. trousers of jeans material or with stud fasteners or patch, external pockets will not be acceptable school wear from September 2016. Therefore, if trousers need to be replaced this academic year I would advise purchasing acceptable trousers (as per the uniform guidance on the website) to avoid any future difficulty.
