Uniform

By choosing to send your child to Codsall Community High School there is an implicit agreement that the school’s policies and standards will be adhered to and, more importantly, supported. We do not want to waste your time, or our time, being diverted from our core purpose of teaching and  learning, by having disagreements about uniform.

We have significantly enhanced the level of detail in our uniform guidance to ensure that there is little confusion or room for interpretation.

We are determined that we have the highest standards possible for our students to ensure that they are well prepared for life after school. By giving parents detailed guidance we anticipate that we will avoid any future issues. A minority of students sometimes refuse to follow our uniform code, often with parental support. Please be aware that we will operate a rigorous approach to uniform. For all bar exceptional medical circumstances (backed up with a note from a GP) students wearing the incorrect uniform will be taught in Refocus UNTIL THE PARENT / CARER brings the correct article of uniform to school.

 

WHY DO WE HAVE A SCHOOL UNIFORM?

  • Helps to Prevent Bullying
    Clothes are a status symbol in schools. Many students who are unable to afford the newest fashions or name brand clothing are ostracized and made fun of. A school uniforms puts everyone on an even playing field and prevents this type of bullying from happening.
  • Promotes School Spirit and a sense of pride
    If every single day, every person in the school is sporting their school’s colours, then a feeling of unity and togetherness is inspired. This helps with the overall moral of the student body and ignites a higher sense of school spirit and pride.
  • Eases Morning Routines
    Knowing exactly what you are wearing for the day, and having no other choice, greatly reduces the amount of preparation and time that is required on getting ready for school in the morning. This helps to reduce stress in the students and parents, as well as allow for a more restful night sleep.
  • Money Saving
    The pressure to buy children, especially the older ones, expensive clothing which is in line with current fashion trends is huge for parents. School uniforms are often much cheaper than buying an entire wardrobe of on-trend and fashion branded clothing.
