The staff will support pupils with their uniform and regularly check that expectations are being met. If pupils are in the incorrect uniform;

  • A message will be sent home via MCAS reaffirming expectations in uniform if in incorrect uniform for 1st time. Alternative uniform will be provided to pupil if required.
  • This pupil is then logged and check back performed the next day to ensure correct uniform is worn.
  • If not, they will miss part of their social time, and this is communicated home again via MCAS
  • If the same pupil continues to not meet expectations a formal uniform letter is sent home and an escalation in missing social times will be implemented

We are confident that these measures will support pupils in building a sense of community at Danesfield, further enriching their experience, attainment, and achievement.
