Further to my recent blog, I would like to start by saying thank you for your support of the school and its policies. Last week's blog, which refers to the school no longer allowing Nike Airforce footwear, has raised some responses from parents and students. Having listened to the voice of our stakeholders, we have made the following amendment to our policy on school footwear:
From September students will be expected to arrive to school in smart footwear that is:
- Plain and all black This includes soles and laces. There should be no other colours on the footwear or any sparkles.
- Leather No canvas or mesh material
- Flat and below the ankle There should be no air pockets or have any rise, heeled shoes are not allowed.
Our policy on uniform exists to ensure that all students are smart, dress safely and appropriately. The policy should also provide parents with clarity on expectations. We hope that by making this amendment to our policy we are responding to the voice of our parents and providing clarity for September.
I would like to wish you all a lovely summer holiday,
Mrs J. Lowe
