COVID-19 Safe Interim Uniform Adjustments for September 2020
Whilst we will be broadly returning to or regular uniform in the Autumn, there will be some relaxations on expectations to enable frequent washing of clothes to minimise viral transmission via this source. Students will not be required to wear a blazer in school or travelling to and from school. In addition, with ease and frequency of laundering in mind, we would encourage the use of polo shirts. Where white shirts are worn there will be no requirement to wear the tie.
Face masks and gloves should be worn to school if students are using public transport, however these must be disposed of on entry to school and gloves are not permitted to be worn during the school day.
As you will appreciate, plans are subject to review and change, as per timeframes and directives that are not always in our control. Therefore, we will be operating a 3 week cycle of review for adjustments that include uniform decisions relating to blazers and ties in particular. We will ensure that parent/carers are supported with reasonable due notice of any such changes.
