Thank you to all parents for supporting us with our high expectations for uniform at Abbeyfield school.
We have been following the national discussion on social media regarding the colour of outdoor coats and safety implications. The safety and welfare of our students is a priority and so from after half term, we are removing the necessity for dark outdoor coats and would suggest that students ensure that if they are purchasing winter coats, that they consider if they would be easily seen by traffic and would suggest attaching a high viz strip to their bag and for cyclists in particular, maybe a high viz sash.
Following thoughtful and mature student consultation we have updated our sixth form dress code. This has now been shared with all our sixth form students and will be strictly enforced from September, ensuring we maintain high standards and professionalism for all our young people. If you are a sixth form student or parent/carer, please ensure you are familiar with it and have appropriate attire ready for September. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Mrs Dedman, Head of Sixth Form.
