We are continually focussing on developing all of our students’ “Park View Learner” skills; one of these skills is to become a self-manager.
We believe that it is an essential part of the ethos and discipline structure that all students in Years 7 to 11 manage the way in which they present themselves and comply with the school uniform requirements. We are very proud of our community at Park View and want all our young people to show that they are too, by wearing our uniform with pride.
We have noticed that a small minority of students are not complying with our very high expectations in terms of the uniform and it would be greatly appreciated if you would support us by ensuring your child adheres to the school’s uniform policy.
The school uniform requirements have been provided below for your reference:
If a student is not prepared for learning because they are not wearing the correct uniform or using something that disrupts theirs or others learning, then a member of staff may confiscate it and return it at the end of the lesson or pass onto the pastoral team where appropriate. If there is a refusal to cooperate then the warning system is put into operation followed by time-out or even on-call. The property should then be handed over to the pastoral team who will make a judgement about student safety (mobile phones) or contact home to return the property to a parent/carer. There is no legal requirement to return items that have been confiscated but the school will endeavour to return all items, however the school cannot be held responsible for confiscated items. Those items that are not collected will be passed onto charity or otherwise disposed of.

Full school uniform should be worn on trips that take place during the school day, unless there are specific requirements of the trip where different clothes are more appropriate. The type of footwear worn on school trips is at the discretion of the department running the trip but this must be clearly communicated to students, staff and parents prior to the trip going ahead. If for any reason, your child cannot adhere to these requirements then they may be sent home to change or parents/carers will be asked to bring in appropriate items. They must have their planner signed by tutor, Pastoral team member or member of SLT. Other sanctions may also apply.
