SCHOOL UNIFORM POLICY

Rationale

A school uniform provides a sense of belonging, pride and identity in a school, as well as helping to develop organisational skills. An element of safety is achieved due to quick and easy identification of St. George International School & Preschool students, especially when on extracurricular activities and excursions.

Policy

The school uniform of SGIS has been designed by Virginia Zdravkova to be appropriate for day to day use, smart, comfortable, warm and durable. All items of the school uniform carry the distinctive sign of St. George International School & Preschool. The uniform consists of formal, casual and sportswear which are available for purchase from the school shop.

The official uniform is compulsory for the official opening and closing of the school year, school visits and other events at the discretion of the school.

Students are expected to come to school dressed in either official or casual uniform and change into their sports uniform for PE. For hygiene reasons students should change back into their official or casual uniform after PE.

NOTE: Until block ‘B’ is completed students may come to school in their sports uniform on days in which they have PE. After PE, they should change into their official or casual uniform.

Makeup, jewellery, hair, watches, etc…

SGIS understands that students may wish to express a degree of individuality. The school do not want to be over restrictive and therefore adopts a ‘reactive’ position. Students are welcome to express themselves as they wish provided they follow the following basic guidelines. Restrictions may be put in place if deemed necessary in the future.

Girls may wear light makeup if they wish. It should be subtle and not easily noticeable.

Hair can be worn either tied up, or loose, except during PE or Science where it will be tied up

Nails may have subtle, discrete polish. No extreme colours or false nails.

Ears may have discrete piercings. No lose or hanging decoration may be worn.

Nothing should be worn that could constitute a choking, or strangling hazard.

Watches may be worn but the school takes no responsibility for damage that may occur, they should be removed for PE. Smart Watches are forbidden.

Violation of policy

Students who come to school with the wrong uniform will receive a ‘U’ in the planner. This should be monitored by the class masters every morning.

- 1 ‘U’ – Warning.

- 2 ‘U’s – a letter is sent home to the parents, reminding them of the policy.

- 3 ‘U’s – Student is removed from classroom and supervised by a member of staff until the parent either a) brings in the correct uniform, or b) takes the student home.

Lost uniforms

Items of clothing which are left unattended may be placed in the lost property section for collection. Parents are encouraged to label their child’s uniform with a permanent marker or sewn in name tag on the collar or waist to enable quick and easy identification of uniform items.

Parents are also asked to check labels on uniform items at home in case of students accidentally bringing home items of clothing which are not theirs.
