A school uniform was introduced in Autumn 2008. A number of our students asked if they could wear a school uniform, so in the Spring 2008 term we asked our students to vote “For” or “Against” a school uniform - 89% of them voted “YES".
Staff believe that since implementing the school uniform, those coming into school wearing the correct uniform are more focused, settle easier and are ready to start learning. It is the parent / carer’s responsibility to ensure their child is wearing the correct uniform each and every school day. Those students who are not in the correct uniform will be sent home to change into their uniform and return to school.
The school uniform consists of :
- white collar short sleeved shirt
- navy sweatshirt with school logo
- dark (black, navy or grey) trousers and
- black shoes / trainers.
The tie is optional but must be worn at assembly and special events.
The School provides this uniform when joining Cavendish and at the beginning of every autumn term; two white collar short sleeved shirts and two navy sweatshirts. We ask that should your child need further white shirts that you purchase these as and when required.
Should your child lose or damage their school sweatshirt the school can provide a replacement at a cost of £10.00. Payment can be made in either in cash or by cheque made payable to “Cavendish School Limited”. We would suggest that when your child has PE that they bring a t-shirt, shorts / tracksuit bottoms (depending on weather) and trainers to change into.
During the summer term when the weather is exceptionally hot we will not require students to wear the school sweatshirt.
If you require further information please contact your child’s tutors.
