Through our uniform and dress code we aim to:
- Encourage pride in the school
- Support teaching and learning
- Enable pupils to be comfortable, safe and secure
- Encourage a sense of equality and belonging to the school community
- Protect pupils from social pressures to dress in a particular way
- Support parents to provide an efficient and value for money dress code for their son/daughter
- Ensure that pupils from different social, religious and ethnic groups feel welcome.
An example of the uniform at Craven PRS is at the top of the page. Our expectations are that pupils will wear black shoes, a black skirt or trousers. We will provide
you with your Craven PRS T-shirt and sweatshirt. Under some circumstances, pupils who attend the centre may also be attending their mainstream school at some point during the day. In cases like
these, pupils are expected to wear their mainstream school uniform kept to an acceptable standard in line with the expectations highlighted.
SKIRT: black skirt.
TROUSERS: plain black trousers.
SHIRT: white shirt or polo shirt
SWEATSHIRT: black sweatshirt or jumper
SHOES: sensible footwear, preferably black.
HATS: no hats to be worn in school.
JEWELLERY: one small discreet stud may be worn in each ear. No facial piercing. A wristwatch may be worn but no bracelets.
‘Non uniform’ Events
If pupils are not expected to wear uniform because of a charity event or because they are on a trip, their clothing should be appropriate for the working
environment/activities that they are taking part in.
Examples of unacceptable clothing items are: cropped tops, low cut vest tops, strapless tops and very short skirts or shorts.
There should not be flesh on show between the top itself and the top of the skirt or trouser.
Hats are not to be worn in school. The wearing of a head scarf or hijab is permitted, for religious reasons, but the wearing of the niqab is not permitted. Extremes
of make up or hair colour are unacceptable.
No flip flop shoes
T-shirts should not display extreme/offensive views or comments.
Enforcement of the Policy
It is the responsibility of the Headteacher and staff to monitor and enforce the uniform as part of the day to day running of the school. Parents have the
responsibility to ensure that their son/daughter comes to school in the correct uniform.
In the first instance, the keyworker should deal with any minor breach of the uniform policy. A message could be sent home.
In the case of jewellery and other accessories which infringe the policy, a member of staff may ask the pupil to remove the item. It will be taken to the office and
may be collected at the end of the school day.
The Headteacher is the final arbiter in all matters of uniform and dress.
