School Uniform

Supplier

The Weald School uniform policy requires that the items listed below should be purchased for all students. The majority of uniform and PE items are available from our school uniform supplier:

Broadbridges, 3 Piries Place, Horsham, West Sussex RH12 1EH   Tel: 01403 259620 Broadbridges also offer an online service at http://www.broadbridges.co.uk/. Core items may also be available from other school wear suppliers, but they must be compliant with the school uniform policy.

General

The school expects and encourages every student to look smart at all times. Students are expected to present with: natural and tidy hair, no extreme styles or colours. Examples of these would include styles which are shorter than a grade 2 and those which are short on the sides or back and then stepped into a longer length on top. 'Steps', 'ridges' and patterns are not appropriate for school.

No nail varnish or acrylic nails. Natural and discreet foundation is acceptable but eye make-up and lip make-up is not suitable or necessary for school. This includes coloured in eyebrows. Eyebrows should be natural and not coloured. It is the school's judgement on whether these expectations have been met. If in any doubt always check with your Head of House before making any changes. It is vital for all property to be clearly marked with the student’s name. In this way lost property can be traced.

Jewellery

Jewellery is limited to one plain watch and one small pair of gold or silver studs. These should be in the ear and not in the part of the ear that attaches to the face (tragus or anti tragus piercing). No piercings other than the ear are acceptable. Nose and tongue studs are not permitted. Students will be asked to remove them.

Footwear

All students are to wear shoes: trainers and boots are NOT allowed. Trainers are only to be worn during PE/Games lessons where appropriate. Shoes must be of a style suitable for school in plain black polishable leather-style. Brown soled, canvas or suede shoes may not be worn. Socks must be grey, black or white. An alternative would be plain grey, black or natural coloured tights.

Outer Wear

Outer jackets may be worn when travelling to school in inclement weather but should be in addition to, and not a replacement for the school blazer. Hooded sweatshirts or tracksuit tops that cover the uniform are not appropriate outer coats.

Please note that the blazer AND polo shirt should be worn together, and the Weald jumper is to be worn in addition to the blazer, not instead of.

School Bag

The possession of a sturdy school bag is strongly advised and books should be covered.
