    Uniform

    The School's Uniform Policy

    Wath Comprehensive School A Language College has a rigorous approach to uniform. It is expected that students will comply with our uniform rules. If there is a genuine reason why a student cannot comply with the uniform rules, parents/carers should provide a letter for their child to bring to school.

    Failure to comply with uniform rules and / or refusal to remove non-uniform items with incur sanctions ranging from detentions through to isolation and fixed term exclusion.

    Uniform checks are carried out at the beginning of lessons as part of the daily routine and any breach of the rules will be passed onto our Pastoral Year Leader team to be followed up.

    Footwear:

    Only plain black shoes are allowed to be worn. No trainers, boots, pumps or canvas shoes will be allowed. Heels should be no higher than 1 inch. Trainers and gym shoes must only be worn during PE lessons.

    Blazers:

    Students must wear blazers at all times when they are inside the school building. They may remove their blazer if permission has been given by a member of staff during a lesson.

    Outdoor Coats:

    Outdoor coats of any type must not be worn instead of or underneath the school blazer anywhere on the school site. Please note hoodies, leather or denim outdoor coats / jackets are not acceptable.

    Jewellery and make up:

    No jewellery is permitted except for a watch, one pair of plain studs or sleepers (one stud in each earlobe). We do not accept responsibility for jewellery brought into school.

    Only a small amount of discreet make-up is permitted.

    Tattoos and jewellery items associated with facial or other bodily piercings are not permitted.
