Stand Up to Cancer - Non Uniform Day - Thursday 20th October

We are delighted to be supporting the charity ‘Stand Up to Cancer’ by holding a non-uniform day on Thursday 20th October 2016.

Every Autumn Stand Up To Cancer unites the UK in the fight against cancer. Thousands of people across the UK will be standing together and fundraising for this excellent cause, culminating in a live TV show on Channel 4 on Friday 21st October.

This year, we are proud that our students will join this movement of fundraisers and unite to beat cancer sooner. Students are invited to bring a suggested donation of £1 in return for wearing their own clothes to school.  Donations will be collected as students arrive in the morning.  We ask that the correct change is brought to ease collection.

We have stressed to our students that the clothing worn as ‘non-uniform’ must be suitable for school and we request that you support this by checking the outfit that your son/daughter chooses to wear.  Students who are inappropriately dressed will be asked to go home and change and we would of course prefer to avoid any interruptions to learning. 

Unacceptable clothing for non-uniform days: 

  • For health and safety reasons no additional jewellery may be worn than is acceptable on a normal school day 
  • Stiletto, high or pointed heels, platform shoes
  • Low cut or otherwise revealing tops
  • Short or otherwise revealing skirts or trousers
  • Hats are not permitted

     

Please may we take this opportunity to remind you that this will be the last day of school for students before the Half term break.  Friday 21st October is a staff INSET day.  Students will return to school on Monday 31st October.

Thank you in advance for your support.
