Letter to Parents – Estyn Inspection in October 2018
Estyn Parents leaflet
Term begins on Tuesday 4th September for pupils. Monday 3rd is an INSET day for staff only.
We hope you have had an enjoyable break and look forward to welcoming you all back next week.
Dear Parents and Pupils
We have undertaken a full review of our school uniform this year in consultation with pupils, staff, parents and governors. Some elements are remaining the same and others are changing. One change that has been brought in early is the introduction of shorts as an option for the Summer Term only. Many parents and pupils have taken up this option.
From September 2018 all school trousers, skirts and shorts will have to incorporate the school trademark. Only Picton Sports (Dafen, Llanelli) and Sew and Sew (Gorseinon) have been given permission to use the school’s trademark, which is registered with the UK government. I have attached the current price lists from these companies, which are our official uniform suppliers.
On the attached school document, I have included images of what is appropriate school uniform and what is not, with the aim of ensuring clarity about our expectations as a school. Uniform is an important part of our ethos and we would welcome the support of parents in helping to enforce this. Pupils who are not wearing the correct uniform will be sent home to change and parents will be contacted as part of this process.
As ever, we are sympathetic to cases of genuine hardship where families may be struggling to afford uniform. Please contact the office on 01792 533066 for a confidential discussion if you are in this position.
Further details on the uniform policy and prices from two suppliers are available to download below.
