Principal’s Letter to Parents – 7th June 2021

Dear Parents/Carers,

Tomorrow we are expecting to see an increase in temperatures so we have made the decision that from Tuesday 8th June until the end of term summer uniform may be worn to school. All uniform requirements remain the same but students do not have to wear their blazer if they do not wish to do so. Please could we ask all students who do not wish to wear their blazer to take their coloured year group badge off their blazer and pin it onto the polo shirt that they are wearing to school. This will help to ensure that students remain safely within bubbles.

Uniform expectations

Students may continue to wear their physical activity kit on days that they have physical activity lessons on their timetables. Please could we ask you to ensure that students are wearing the correct school kit in these situations. Listed below are the acceptable items of clothing that can be worn on these days.

Thank you for your continued support with uniform.

Yours sincerely,

J K Single
