The school uniform is important. It helps set the high standards that we would all want from our school. It also ensures that every child is equal and removes potential stress and cost from students trying to follow the latest fashion trends. We must insist that all students follow the correct uniform to ensure fairness to all. Most of our uniform can be purchased from Emblematic, either via their website or their Bedlington shop www.emblematic.co.uk

If a student arrives at school in the incorrect uniform, they must rectify this before they enter the tutor room.
Where the uniform cannot be corrected immediately (i.e. trainers, skirt etc.) students should go to the Student Support Area to borrow before 8.50am so that they are not late to the tutor period at 8:50am.
If there is no uniform to borrow then the student will be given one day’s grace. After this time, or where there is no parental explanation, students will be placed into the Bridging Room until rectified.
A doctor’s note must be provided where, for medical reasons, students cannot wear school shoes.
