Staff and parents have an important role to play in promoting the wearing of school uniform.
Parents should advise the class teacher verbally or in writing, indicating the reasons and likely duration on such occasions when their children are unable to wear school uniform.
Where there are continual breaches parents will be contacted to seek their support ensuring that the policy is adhered to.
Parents may make a written application to the Principal requesting that a student be exempted from wearing school uniform.
Possible grounds for exemption include health or religious reasons.
All requests for exemption will be discussed at the next available School Council meeting and the parents will be informed of the outcome.
