Breaches of school uniform regulations will be recorded by staff, either as a comment in the pupil planner or on a C3 slip. The following issues crop up occasionally: white socks for boys, canvas/training shoes worn in school, shirt hanging out, top button of shirt undone, tie too short and at KS3/4, too much make-up, use of nail varnish or too much/inappropriate jewellery.  All pupils are required to wear full school uniform on their way to and from school, when representing the school at sporting fixtures, and at other school functions.
