Whitworth Community High School insists on the highest standards of uniform. It is important that students take pride in their appearance and are aware of the impression their appearance makes within the community. Whitworth Community High School seeks to promote a sense of belonging and shared identity through the implementation of its uniform policy.
The Headteacher will be the arbiter in all matters relating to uniform, dress and appearance. Parents/carers and students are advised to consult the headteacher, or a member of the Senior Leadership Team, if they are considering uniform, dress or appearance changes that might conflict with the school policy.
Any student who arrives out of uniform, in suitable uniform, wearing inappropriate jewellery, or with an unsuitable hairstyle or hair colour may be removed from lessons and parent/carer contacted. A record will be made in the student's file. If a student persistently ignores the uniform code, the school will need to employ further sanctions.
