We know that recent increases in the cost of living will be impacting many families, and the trust has looked at ways in which it may be able relieve some of the financial pressures you may be experiencing. The trust recognises that school uniform can be expensive and has reviewed its Uniform Policy.
Currently, all secondary students are required to wear trousers or skirts that feature the trust logo which are only available from Trutex Direct or one of the approved local uniform suppliers. The trust have therefore taken the decision to remove the requirement for students to wear logoed trousers and skirts. This change will be effective from 1 January 2023.
The attached letter will provide you with further information on the options available to you and a reminder on what we consider as appropriate school trousers and skirts. Please can you ensure that uniform is rectified over the Christmas period as we expect all students to be wearing the correct uniform in full on their return. Please ensure that your child has a bag that includes their planner and stationary. Planners and ties are available to buy from school and you can purchase these via iPay. Any purchases for these will be issued to your child on their return on Tuesday 3 January 2023.
Thank you for your continued support.
Merry Christmas to you and your families and all the best for 2023.
