Uniform

All pupils are expected to wear the The Clere School uniform with pride. It should be worn properly with clean shoes, shirts and blouses tucked in and no jumpers round the waist. Blazers should be worn at all times.  All items of clothing should be labelled.

 

Lost Property

Pupils are taught to look after their own clothing and equipment and respect those belonging to others.  However, occasionally clothing and property are misplaced, such items are sent to reception.  Named items are returned to pupils and any unnamed items are retained for two weeks and then passed to the second-hand uniform store for recycling.

Information Sheet for Ordering School Uniform Online

All students should wear school uniform and maintain acceptable standards of appearance at all times, and should wear their uniform with price.

 

Students and parents should be aware that if we feel that the amount or nature of jewellery worn by an individual student is inappropriate or unreasonable, he or she will be expected to remove it and if necessary the item of jewellery will be confiscated by the member of staff.  It will be kept in the school safe.

Physical Education PE kit

Information for all pupils

  1. PE KIT - Every effort must be made by the pupil to ensure that the correct PE kit is brought to all PE lessons and that it is clean and tidy (not ripped or muddy etc.). All items of jewellery (including wrist bands) must be removed before the lesson and kept in your locker for safekeeping.

     

  2. LOST PE KIT - Please ensure that all items of PE kit are clearly named. Failure to do this will mean the school cannot and will not guarantee the safe return of any items of PE kit should they be lost or stolen.

     

  3. MEDICAL NOTES - If you are unable to participate in a PE lesson for medical reasons, every effort must be made to ensure that your PE kit is still worn for your PE lesson. Should the nature of your medical condition prevent you from actively participating in the lesson itself, you will be encouraged to fulfil alternative roles within the lesson such as coach, official or organiser. In all cases, a hand written note in your student diary from your parent/carer must always be provided and shown to your PE teacher at the start of the lesson. Please note also that not all medical conditions will prevent you from taking part in the lesson. For example, an in-growing toenail would not prevent you from throwing a discus!

     

  4. FAILURE TO BRING IN PE KIT - If for whatever reason you forget to bring in your PE kit for your lesson, you will be issued with a spare PE kit for that lesson. When and where possible, the PE department aims to keep all spare kit clean and tidy. It is your responsibility to ensure the PE kit is returned directly to your PE teacher at the end of the lesson (and not left in the changing room for someone else to tidy up). Failure to bring in your complete PE kit for a lesson (or subsequent lessons) may result in a suitable sanction being put in place.

     

  5. VALUABLES - Valuables should not be brought to your PE lesson. Items such as watches, mobile phones, loose change and jewellery should be kept safely in your locker during your lesson. Now and again, the PE changing rooms will not always be locked and thus the PE department can never guarantee the safety of such items.

     

  6. AEROSOL DEODOANTS - Under no circumstances are aerosol deodorants to be used in the changing rooms or any other part of the school building. Please respect this as they can have severe implications on the health of asthma sufferers in particular.

     

  7. SHOWERS - Showers are available for pupils to use at the end of PE lessons. However, due to time constraints, this is not always possible. Every effort is made to ensure they are used during the winter months, particularly following rugby lessons.

     

  8. For a full copy of the PE kit and participation policy, ask any member of the PE staff.
