Dress with Pride

We believe that it is vital we encourage all our students to "wear their uniform with pride". It teaches them the value of looking smart and helps them gain a sense of belonging to the school community.

NO earrings to be worn for PE. Children must be able take these out and put back in themselves or cover them with tape.


Please support your child in wearing the approved uniform; instances of incorrect items being worn will be managed under our behaviour policy and the consequences described within.

Please note:

  • Earrings are limited to one pair of plain studs only
  • No other jewellery including rings or facial piercings
  • No makeup, including nail varnish/acrylic nails


  • Hair should be appropriately styled for school

If there are valid circumstances preventing your child from wearing full uniform, you MUST advise us via a written note as soon as possible. We wish to see all students correctly dressed and are able to consider assistance in cases of genuine hardship.
