Pupils of St Thomas More Catholic High School are expected to always remember to be courteous and respectful to other people’s feelings and to show self-respect. This ethos should be reflected in the choice of dress on non-uniform days.
It is important to remember that a non-uniform day is still a working school day and as such, pupils must dress accordingly. Pupils must bear in mind that they are still going to be sitting in classes, laboratories and doing PE etc.
The following are guidelines to ensure that pupils are dressed suitably for a working day:-
• Comfortable clothing which takes account of the weather/season
• Sensible footwear i.e. think about stairs, slippery floors
• Tops, skirts and shorts that are modest and do not expose too much flesh
The school will reserve the right to take action if a pupil’s dress is deemed to be inappropriate. In extreme circumstances, pupils may be sent home.
