The governing body of each school decides on the uniform policy or dress code, and it is the headteacher’s responsibility to make sure pupils keep to the rules.

Schools will determine their own standards of dress as part of their school uniform policy. Therefore schools may differ on what is expected as suitable footwear, length of hair. Schools should take into consideration costs, cultural and religious requirements and special needs issues.

If you have any complaints about the uniform policy or dress code, talk to the school governing body.
