I would like to thank you for your contribution to ensuring that our students are all representing Cavendish School in the correct school uniform. The overwhelming majority of our students dress and present themselves appropriately every day.
As the weather is changing I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of our expectations regarding uniform for the forthcoming term and to add some guidance for parents who may hear the refrain: “but everybody else does!” We appreciate that students will be wearing coats to and from school but once in the school building coats, hoodies and cardigans may not be worn. As outlined in the School Uniform Policy there is an expectation that when students are on the school site that they wear their blazers at all times and if they need extra layers due to the cold they are permitted to wear a plain navy blue V necked jumper underneath their blazer. This is not compulsory but an optional extra and is not permitted as an alternative to a blazer.
We do expect that students will be wearing plain black shoes and if wearing socks and/or tights, they must be plain black. Fabric plimsolls and boots are not permitted. Please be aware that should a student come to school dressed in incorrect uniform, particularly if they do not have their blazer with them, we reserve the right to send them home until they return in correct uniform. Any students who have not been meeting the uniform expectations this term will be receiving an additional letter home.
Thank you again and should you seek further information or guidance, please do not hesitate to contact the Progress Leader.

Senior Progress Leader
