At Scissett our aim is to have a uniform which is smart, simple, inexpensive and easy to obtain. Wearing school uniform is part of the process by which pupils begin to feel a sense of being part of our school. In addition, we feel that wearing uniform contributes to a school ethos where happiness, a sense of community, hard work and achievement are valued.

Jewellery and Fashion Accessories
Only simple items of jewellery may be worn, for example, a watch. If ears are pierced, one pair of plain gold or silver studs may be worn. Large diamond, pearl or luminous earrings are not acceptable. Large looped earrings should not be worn to school as these may present a health and safety hazard. Likewise, nose studs, eyebrow studs and rings are not acceptable. Pupils wearing unacceptable items will be asked to remove them. Nail extensions/nail varnish should not be worn in school. Pupils wearing nail varnish or make-up will be asked to remove it. Rings and necklaces are not allowed unless for religious reasons. A letter from parents, in this case, would be appreciated.
Should hair bands be worn, these should be discreet and preferably of school colours (ie dark blue, black, grey or brown would be appreciated).
Hair and Make-up
We are a successful school because we insist on the highest standards. This also applies to appearance. Hair accessories should be plain and discreet. We do not expect pupils to sport some of the extreme haircuts currently fashionable. Nor do we want to see pupils with extreme colours in their hair.
Pupils may not wear make-up in school. This includes eye-liner, mascara, foundation and lip glosses or lipsticks.
Art and Craft Work
Some form of protection for clothing is essential. This may take the form of an old shirt worn back to front on an inexpensive apron.
Pupils do need a school bag to transport books and equipment but it should be of a reasonable size (suggested length 50cm).
All pupils have a personal tray in their form room. School equipment can be stored there if it is not needed at home.
Please note that the School and Local Authority cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage to property, so please do not allow your children to bring valuable articles to school.
The vast majority of our pupils are scrupulously honest. Lost property can usually be recovered very quickly if the loss is reported straight away and the articles are marked. Watches, etc can be reclaimed from the school office.
However, pupils should not bring valuables or large sums of money to school unless strictly necessary. Money must not be left in cloakrooms, desks or drawers. During a P.E. lesson valuables should be handed to the teacher for safe keeping. Radios, iPods and MP3 players are not allowed. Should they be brought to school and then lost, damaged or stolen, children would be very upset. Don’t let your children bring them.
MOBILE PHONES should be clearly marked and kept in pupils’ bags.They may not be used whilst children are at school and should be switched off before entering school.
