This is a requirement of all staff, visitors and Sixth Form students to comply with safeguarding regulations. Students may be sent home to change their clothes or to collect a name badge if they do not comply with the dress code requirements as described above.

Any student who is unsure of what is acceptable should see Mrs Legg, Mrs Wilson or Mrs Padgham
