Each school decides its own uniform policy
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.
For more information please visit the GOV.UK website’s school uniform page.
Despite leaflets provided by the Department for Work and Pensions stating that “grants may be available from your local council”, this is not applicable to residents in Somerset because we do not provide this grant. Parents should ask the school if they offer any support if the child is in receipt of pupil premium.
Some school uniforms are only available from a limited number of outlets, or in some cases only one.
