Uniform – Causeway School – 2017/18

  • Plain Black leather shoes with no flashes or colours (no trainers allowed)
  • Hair styles must not be extreme in either cut or colour

Coats and Jackets: Coats and jackets may be worn on the way to School but must be removed immediately on entering the School buildings.

Shoes: All pupils should wear plain black, leather shoes with dark soles and, if applicable, black laces. Black plimsolls or shoes that have a trainer look are not an acceptable alternative and are strictly not allowed. Boots must not be worn. In exceptional cases, alternative footwear will be permitted only if a letter from a doctor can be shown.

Mobile Phones: Students are not permitted to have their mobile phone on or out of their bags during lessons or while moving between lessons. Students can use them if sensible at break times and lunch times. Mobile phones will be confiscated and kept in the school safe for parents to collect if students use them at inappropriate times or inappropriately at break and lunch times.

Please see the images at the bottom of these notes for further guidance.

 

Uniform infringements:

Following government guidelines, the Headteacher or a person authorised by the Headteacher may ask a pupil to go home briefly to remedy a breach of the School’s rules on appearance or uniform.

When making this decision, Causeway School will always consider the pupil’s age and vulnerability, the ease and time it will take and the availability of the pupil’s parents. This is not an exclusion but an authorised absence. Pupils who are not able or willing to remedy their improper uniform will be isolated with their Head of year. If a pupil continues to breach School Uniform rules this may result in a fixed term exclusion.

The above notes are provided to help staff in some possibly problematic situations concerning school uniform. The notes are not comprehensive and during any school year new questions may arise.

Issues arising from the Uniform Policy:

Parents should raise any issues relating to school uniform, dress code or other aspects of appearance with the Headteacher. Requests to vary the uniform requirements for particular reasons such as medical needs, will always be considered carefully.
