In order to support our committment to high standards of school uniform, we are introducing a 'First Impressions' card that will be given to every student and used to record incidents where they fail to comply with our uniform and and personal presentation standards. The card will also enable us to acknowledge those students who are consistent in meeting these expectations.
This initative is a response to an increasing number of students who consistently fall below required standards with regard to uniform and presentation.
How will the First Impressions Card work?
- Students are expected to carry the card with them at all times (in their blazer pocket).
- If a student is seen to not be meeting the school uniform and presentation standards, this will be recorded on their card, signed and dated by a member of staff.
- If a student receives three signatures, on the third occasion they will be internally excluded until the matter is resolved.
- E-praise points will be awarded to students whose cards remain unsigned at the end of each half term. We expect the the majority of our students will receive recognition for their excellent appearance.
Please read our Uniform Guide and the letter that has been sent home for detailed information about the standards of uniform and presentation required.
If you have any concerns or queries regarding this new initiative, please contact either Mr Walters or Mr Reid using the online Contact Us form or by phone.
