Frederick Gent School believes that uniform plays a valuable role in contributing to the ethos of the school and setting an appropriate tone. It is our policy that all students should wear school uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school organised event outside normal school hours. A complete list of compulsory school logo branded items, compulsory non-branded items and optional items of uniform is included within this statement.
Our policy is based on the belief that a school uniform:
We ask all parents who send their children to our school to support the school uniform policy.
Any family facing hardship or with a child eligible for Free School Meals, and for whom compulsory items of uniform would represent an unmanageable cost, are also invited to approach either the students Achievement Leader or Achievement Leader Support Assistant as the school may be able to assist with the purchase.
All Items of branded school uniform can be purchased from Mitchell Sports. The store is situated at the address below;
72 Mansfield Rd
DE55 2ER South Normanton
Non branded items of uniform can be purchased from high street suppliers, as long as they reflect the schools uniform policy and standards. I would remind parents that not all items, on the high street which is marketed as school uniform will comply with our school uniform policy which must be considered when purchasing any items.
ALL those in Years 7 to 11 must wear the school uniform, as listed below.
The school’s Senior Leadership Team will define what is deemed acceptable under all of the guidelines contained in the school uniform statement.
In the modern world of fashion, it is now ‘debatable’ as to what is defined as school uniform and what is not. For general guidance on what Frederick Gent School believes suitable uniform is, we have put together some basic guidelines to help (please see additional booklet).
School uniform at Frederick Gent School is not meant to be a vehicle for students to indulge in expensive fashion labels and brands, it is there to ensure a consistent approach to standards at Frederick Gent School for every student.
Any student who is wearing non-regulation uniform will be expected to comply with the dress code by ensuring appropriate uniform is worn. Parents/carers will be contacted to inform them of any issues. We hope that this is clear so that the wasted expense of purchasing inappropriate school uniform for the school year is avoided. Please don’t hesitate to contact the relevant Achievement Leader prior to purchasing any school uniform if you should require any further clarification.
