Linton Camp School Uniform Policy

Purpose

At Linton Camp School the purpose of our uniform is to enhance identity, provide quality, economical clothing and eliminate problems of clothing competitiveness.

 

Guidelines

1.    School uniforms must not discriminate on the grounds of sex, race or culture.

2.    Safety considerations will be paramount when making rules to decide what students should wear to school.

3.    Children have the opportunity to express their individuality through their behaviour rather than through their clothing. Mufti days provide adequately for freedom of expression in this field.

4.    If a student repeatedly refuses to wear the correct uniform without just cause, this could be considered to be ‘continual disobedience’ under the education act and is liable for stand down or suspension.

 

Conclusion

The 1989 Education Act gives the Board of Trustees the right to decide the control and management of the school. This includes the power to decide what students should wear to school.

 

Linton Camp School policy is the wearing of a compulsory school uniform. Students and their parents are deemed to have accepted this when they enrol at the school.
