NEW SCHOOL UNIFORM
Friday 14th May 2010
I am writing to inform you that after an extensive period of consultation, the Governing body have decided that the school will be introducing a new school uniform.
The new uniform will be compulsory for all Year 7 pupils who will be joining the school in September. For pupils already in the school there will be a period of one academic year during which either uniform can be worn. From September 2011 only the new uniform will be allowed. This should ensure parents are not exposed to additional costs if they have already recently purchased the old uniform and also provides extensive notice of the requirement for the whole school (Years 7 - 11) to move to the new uniform by September 2011. It is my expectation that as pupils grow out of the old uniform that parents will purchase the new one and so increasingly during the next academic year, the numbers of pupils wearing the new uniform will grow in the school.
The new uniform will comprise:
- Black blazer with embroidered gold logo
- Black tie with two thin gold stripes
- White shirts (short or long sleeves)
- Black trousers (formal) or black skirts
- Black shoes
- Optional black jumper with embroidered gold logo
The only items that we stipulate that should be purchased from our supplier will be the blazer, tie and optional jumper. All the other items may be purchased from other retailers, although can be purchased from our supplier if parents wish to do so. At present the games/PE kit will remain.
Arrangements are being put in place for parents to order the new uniform at the school, as I am aware that parents may wish their child to try on the uniform to ensure the sizes are correct.
On the following evenings, the uniform supplier will be in school for parents to purchase/order uniform:-
Thursday 17 June 2010 5.00pm – 7.00pm
New Intake Evening Thursday 1 July 2010 5.30pm – 8.00pm
Thursday 15 July 2010 5.00pm – 7.00pm
Arrangements are currently being made for the option to order on-line, direct from the supplier’s website and parents will be informed as soon as this facility becomes available.
I sincerely hope that our new uniform will raise pupil self-esteem and the profile of the school in the community. I also hope that the uniform will contribute positively to the ethos of the school, to an atmosphere of high expectations and sense of pride in being a pupil at KHS.
