Parent Information - School Uniform

Values

Community, Equality, Justice, Dignity, Pride

Rationale

We believe a school uniform is important in identifying our school as a community where all children are treated equally. The school’s Uniform Policy aims to provide a clear and common understanding of the school’s uniform and details regarding its implementation for children, parents and teachers.

Policy Statement

● It is the policy of Sacred Heart School to require all children to wear the school uniform as described in the School Uniform

Description

● The school uniform is intended to identify our students with our school and parish.

● It is intended that the school uniform should engender a sense of pride in being part of our school community.

● It is an expectation upon enrolment that this policy will be supported by both families and staff.

● This policy should be read in conjunction with the school’s “Sun Smart Policy” and the School Uniform Description.

Guidelines

● Children are expected to wear the correct school uniform every day.

● Children are expected to wear the school Sports Uniform on days designated for physical education activities and specific sports days when the children represent our school.

● The elements of the school uniform should recognise factors such as: Practicality, Safety and Cost.

● The Parents and Friends Association of our school will be consulted regarding any change to this policy or to the elements of the school uniform. Policy Realisation

● Parents should send a note to school explaining temporary digressions from the school uniform.

● Staff are expected to exercise discretion when policing this policy.

● Occasional “Casual Clothes Days” will be scheduled from time to time at the discretion of the principal.

● Where possible the different elements of the school uniform will be available through the school’s Uniform Shop.

● The School Uniform requirements are to be stated clearly in the school’s Parent Information Book annually. Review of this policy or any part of the uniform will only occur in line with the School Development Plan, ie, as part of the 6 year cycle of review and development the school has in place. Any change to elements of the school uniform must allow for a “phasing in” period. The time allowed for this will be at the discretion of the School Principal.
