We understand that the increasingly hot and humid weather has a real impact on students and how comfortable they are in lessons ( and staff). For the latter half of this week, from break time students have been allowed to remove both their blazers and ties. We also have chilled water on tap every break and lunch for students to replenish their water bottles.
Many students have asked me to look at the uniform policy with the request to include tailored shorts to wear in the summer. On Thursday 22nd, I am to meet with student representatives of Years 7 and 8 to discuss this. I will then speak with the next Principal, Ms Lilley, about the issue.
Changes to the uniform policy ( in particular where increased costs may occur) takes consultation between parents, students, Trustees and staff. To communicate effectively and ensure the right decisions are made, change takes time. Please bear with us.
