Uniform Matters - From Mr Dixon

As we near the half-way point of this academic year (I know, I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone, either) I felt it was an opportune moment to remind students of a few uniform matters. To this end, Tutors have been sharing a Power Point with their Tutees this week, on uniform, lifted straight from the School Dress Code, a full version of which can be found on this very website. Below is a version of the Power Point.

Parental support regarding uniform, and uniform matters, is truly appreciated…

The Basics

·         A Worle Community School Blazer, to be worn at all times, only to be removed with permission from a member of staff. Blazer sleeves should be worn at full length, and not rolled or folded up

·         Hoodies cannot be worn at any time in school, except Year 11 leaver's hoodies from Term 3

·         A white, collared school shirt with sleeve (long or short) with the top button done up. Shirts must be tucked into trousers or skirts

·         Plain, black full-length trousers, worn on the waist, or plain, black, knee length skirt

·         A Worle Community School tie to be worn knotted at the collar and navel/waist length

  • Plain, black, V-neck knitted jumper worn under the blazer: sweatshirts or round necked jumpers are not permitted

Shoes and Socks

·         Plain, black, flat, leather or leather-look polishable closed shoes are to be worn at all times

·         There are currently thirteen students in the school with a medical condition that requires a ‘soft shoe’ (trainer). Anybody else wearing trainers will be asked to swap them in Student Services for a pair of plain, black polishable shoes

·         Socks must be black or white


•      A maximum of two small stud earrings are allowed to be worn per ear

•      All facial piercings are banned: nose, eyebrow, tongue, lip or face studs, rings, bars, chains, ear plugs, tunnels and stretchers are not allowed to be worn and will be confiscated
