Introduction

The Governors of O Castro International British School believe that smart School attire is an essential part of the ethos of the School and helps to promote a good working environment.In Primary and Secondary, as well as Nursery and Reception years, students are required to wear School uniform.

Separate requirements for P.E. and practical subjects also make up the school’s uniform policy. The uniform items fulfil the criteria of clothing that is suitable, comfortable, affordable and practical.

Pupils are expected to wear their uniform when travelling to and from school and at all times during the school day.

Whenever the school uniform is worn it must be complete and not mixed with non-uniform clothing. This includes when travelling to and from school.

The Head teacher may grant exceptions to any part of the school’s uniform policy but in most instances this will relate to cases of sincere religious observance and where this can be substantiated by a letter from the national body/leadership of the relevant religious community.

The Head teacher is the final arbiter in all matters relating to uniform and appearance.

Aims

Through the uniform the school aims to:

  • Encourage pride in the school.
  • Support teaching and learning.
  • Enable pupils to be comfortable, safe and secure.
  • Encourage a sense of equality and belonging to the school community.
  • Protect pupils from social pressures to dress in a particular way.
  • Support parents by providing a value for money uniform.
  • Ensure the integration of pupils from different social, religious and ethnic groups.
