Enforcing Hampton College Uniform Expectations
The most effective way to enforce uniform expectations is to work in partnership with parents to ensure that the correct uniform is purchased and that students leave for school dressed in accordance with uniform expectations.
However, should students arrive not dressed appropriately the following will be actioned:
- Senior staff will be on the school gates as students arrive
- Any students not dressed in accordance with uniform expectations will be given a reminder note.
- The uniform ‘infringement’ will be recorded.
- Parents will be contacted to ensure they are aware that their son/daughter was not dressed appropriately and how
- We expect the uniform discrepancy to be rectified
It may be appropriate to take further action if uniform is not corrected once identified. These can include:
- Senior staff will be on the gates monitoring uniform as students arrive
- Any students not dressed in accordance with uniform expectations will be placed in the hall where age appropriate work will be provided. That work will be completed in silence.
- Staff will contact home to enable parents to bring the correct uniform item in so that the student can change
- Once the uniform has been corrected the student will be able to rejoin their normal lessons
- The uniform ‘infringement’ will be recorded
We hope that all students arrive dressed appropriately so that we do not have to implement any of the above measures.
Years 7- 11 may wear their summer polo shirt, if they wish. All other uniform requirements still apply:
- Students must wear their blazers
- Students choosing to wear white shirts must also wear their ties
- No jeans
- Skirts must be school style and of a reasonable length
- Shoes must be totally black
- Students are allowed to wear one plain stud in each ear; no other facial piercings are permitted
Students are not allowed to use their mobile phones around school; these will be confiscated if they are seen. There are some situations when students in Years 10 and 11 are permitted by their teachers to use their phones to support their learning.
