School Uniform

Bespoke blazer royal blue with gold trim 1

The Beaulieu Park School believes that our uniform is essential to the ethos of our school community as it establishes a clear sense of identity, fosters a sense of inclusive belonging, and engenders both positive behaviour and self-discipline, which in turn supports teaching and learning.  In determining our uniform and any changes that might follow, the school will seek the views of:

  • Governors
  • Staff
  • Parents
  • Pupils

(A consultation will be arranged if there are any significant changes to the School’s Uniform Policy)

OTHER MATTERS RELATING TO UNIFORM YEARS 7 - 11

Please note: Our school uniform/appearance code is inclusive of hairstyles. With regard to this, we are concerned with promoting a general appearance amongst the student body that is conducive to the aims and objectives of our school. We are aware that extremes of style can often have connotations with groups beyond school, whose attitudes and opinions can have an adverse impact on the ethos of school life. We are also concerned with ensuring that personal appearances do not become one of competition between pupils, which can become a source of unwanted peer pressure to both the pupils themselves, and their parents. Young people of school age are often insecure about their personal appearance, and are therefore more likely to be swayed to conform with the appearance of groups to whom they aspire to be associated. In addition our regulations relating to hair styles are also concerned with promoting safety, which can be compromised in physically active, and practical learning situations.

Our school does not allow students to wear jewellery, as this can compromise safety in physically active lessons, and can result in a pupil being more vulnerable to acts of bullying, and/or street robbery by other young people. Pupils can often misplace/lose items of jewellery, and trying to recover property can be very disruptive to the efficient and effective running of our school.

All other decisions regarding the suitability of students’ dress (or other aspects of appearance, for example jewellery, hairstyle, make up and so on) will be made at the discretion of the Principal.

Responsibilities

It is the Principal’s responsibility to ensure that the uniform policy is implemented and maintained. The Principal will also determine any questions of compliance with the code.

The Principal may delegate particular responsibilities concerning School uniform to members of staff. The Principal will determine which staff may impose sanctions for non-compliance with School uniform.

It is the duty of all staff to uphold the uniform standard and to report any non- compliance to the Principal, via Heads of House, and SLT.
