Uniform Policy and Personal Appearance

1. Items marked * must be obtained from the outfitters. Other items can be purchased where you will.

2. All items of clothing must be marked with student's name – this is especially true to aid changing for PE.

3. No jewellery except watches may be worn by boys or girls. For safety reasons, no piercings are to be worn in school. Tattoos, body piercings and jewelled teeth are not allowed. Coloured contact lenses may not be worn.

4. No nail varnish, false nails, false eye-lashes, false tan or make-up may be used at school.  Fingernails must be short, neat and clean. Students will be required to remove makeup, nail varnish, false nails and eyelashes if they arrive at school wearing any.

5. Hair must be one natural colour and a consistent length. Hair should be no shorter than a number-3 at the back and sides. Skin-fades are not permitted. Undercuts are not permitted. Lines or ‘V’ cuts should not be shaved into hair styles. Senior boys must be clean-shaven. SLT reserve the right to make a judgement about what represents an extreme haircut. Students will not be allowed to access classes in the event of these rules being broken.

6. A hard wearing school bag is required for books/homework, as well as for basic equipment such as pens/biro, pencil, ruler, calculator, rubber, highlighters and coloured pencils. A reading book is required each day. This basic equipment MUST be brought to school each day along with any necessary books, kit or equipment. NOTE - Parents are requested to maintain a close check on the condition of their child's text and exercise books. We ask students to pay for lost or damaged items.

7. Students should have a separate bag for PE and sport kit.

8. Free School Meal Eligibility. Visit https://www.bolton.gov.uk/free-school-meals-clothing-allowance  or contact Bolton Council ‘The One Stop Shop’ to check if your child qualifies for Free School Meals (01204 333333).

9. Fashions change so frequently that it is not possible to cater for every possibility in print. SLT, therefore, reserve the right to decide what is and what is not allowed, both in uniform and general appearance, in cases not catered for by specific rules. It would be advisable, when in doubt, for parents to contact the school before spending money on styles/items that might not be allowed.

10. If, for exceptional reasons, large amounts of money or valuables need to be brought into school, they should be given to the Year team for safe keeping. However, please note that this is a facility offered to aid security; any teacher providing such a service is not accepting responsibility for the money or valuables. Any valuables left in pockets or bags are left at students own risk.

11. Mobile phones are not allowed to be used anywhere on the school site at any time of day. If a student brings in a phone then it must be turned off and in a bag. Anyone seen with a phone, whether they are using it or not, will have it confiscated and parents will be contacted to collect. The phone will not be returned to the student. Apple watches should not be worn in school.

12. Students are not permitted to wear headphones during the school day. Any student using personal headphones without permission in class will have them confiscated.

13. Energy drinks, fizzy drinks and chewing gum are also not permitted at any time in school. Students are not permitted to bring in large quantities of confectionary, sweets and crisps. Students with these items will have them confiscated and they will not be returned.

14. While every effort will be made by normal supervision, discipline and inquiry to safeguard students' property, the school authorities cannot accept responsibility in the case of damage or loss.  Parents may deem it advisable to insure against such loss with their House Contents Insurance Policy. It is student’s responsibility to hand in valuable items to a member of staff at the start of a PE lesson. School will not accept any responsibility for loss or damage to any item not handed in.

15. Students must not buy or sell any goods in school. Any student found to be doing this, will have the goods confiscated before being placed on a Leadership Detention.
