Longhill High School Uniform Policy

 

Introduction

 

Our uniform policy reflects our values and reinforces our school’s culture of high expectations and academic achievement. All pupils must dress according to the uniform policy. Our school uniform is important to us. It is our way in which we identify ourselves as a school community and it promotes a strong, cohesive school identity which supports high standards and expectations in all areas of school life. It promotes harmony between different groups represented in the school, and it enhances security.

 

Smartness and high standards of appearance are expected at all times.

 

Longhill High School recognises the value of having a school uniform for the following reasons:

 

  • Uniforms unite the school. Pupils make a commitment when they put on their Longhill High School uniform that they will abide by the rules of the community.
  • Uniforms reduce distractions. We are focused on achieving success.
  • Uniforms make us all equal. Whether families have high or low incomes, the pupils come to school looking the same way. No one needs to feel bad about the clothes they have or don’t have.
  • There is a safety side to the uniforms because if all students are clearly recognisable it is easy to identify strangers. Also on the way to and from school uniforms afford a degree of safety as the students are part of a large body of young people who will look out for each other.
  • Uniforms look professional. Pupils look neat and ready to learn. It prepares students for future employment.
  • A sense of pride – we all feel proud of our students when they are well dressed in Longhill High School uniform.
  • Value for money – good quality school uniform is a relatively cheap way of dressing young people for school. It makes the morning easier- they only have to think about their uniform and not alternatives.

 

Non-compliance with uniform policy

 

Pupils will not be allowed to attend class if they are not dressed in the appropriate uniform. Parents and careers of pupils that do not wear their uniform correctly will be contacted.

 

There may be good reason why a child is not wearing school uniform. In this case, parents and carers should share the reason with the Headteacher either in person or in writing. The school will always be considerate and discreet in trying to establish why a pupil is not wearing the correct uniform.

 

Students’ uniform will be checked in mentor time. If a student is not in correct uniform their mentor might take one of the following actions:

 

  • A phone call may be made to the parent/career to see if you are able to drop of the correct inform
  • A student may be lent an item of uniform
  • A student might be asked to attend a lunchtime uniform detention with their head of house or year
  • A student may be sent home to change or in the case of persistent offender put on an internal exclusion
