In terms of uniform, we are going to make some simple changes to ensure that students can stay warm as we move into winter.
Our existing uniform policy allows for students to react to changeable weather through the provision of a polo top, a school sweatshirt or cardigan and an outdoor coat. However, now we are faced with a winter with open windows/doors to create ventilation, we need to temporarily review our policy.
Students are encouraged to layer, with a base layer of clothing in our school colours, the polo top, the school sweatshirt and, if they so choose, we will allow a plain dark coloured (grey, blue, black) fleece to ensure that they can remain warm in the winter months. Students will not be permitted to wear their outdoor coat indoors. That fleece may have a simple small logo but must be plain otherwise. It must also not have a hood. Here is an example for parents/students to reference;
The remaining uniform will remain the same, but we must re-emphasise some things that are not permitted;
We will be continuing to complete weekly uniform checks to ensure that our students are proudly wearing the uniform that they agreed to when they chose Swanwick Hall School.
It is a condition of attending the school that students conform to the school dress requirements. Students who attend school incorrectly will not be allowed to attend lessons unless they arrange to have the correct uniform brought from home or agree to wear uniform provided by the school.
If parents/carers about the school uniform requirements they should contact their child’s Progress & Achievement Manager in the first instance.
The following items are optional but strongly advised:

After Easter we're offering extra PE for Year 7. If you'd like to join, please go and change in the sports hall after period 5. Please note, there are no school buses when sessions finish at 4:20 so students are responsible for making their own way home. We hope to see you there!
