Uniform Policy

Rationale

Our aim is to educate students and establish a positive community identity for our school and students in a safe, stimulating and inclusive environment.  All students are expected to be dressed in school uniform.  We are very proud of our students and the uniform they wear, and due to this, the uniform is linked to the school’s Good Standing Policy.  The school uniform has been developed in consultation with the School Board and other members of the School Community, including students.  The benefits of a dress code include:

  • promoting the safety of students through easier identification
  • keeping costs of clothing within reasonable limits for parents
  • assisting students to learn the importance of appropriate presentation

Scope

Students are to wear the designated uniform during school hours and while attending school sanctioned tours, excursions or activities.  Parents/guardians are asked to cooperate by ensuring that students wear their uniform to school each day.  Students are required to change into the relevant uniform when participating in physical education classes, training sessions or competitions.  Every student is expected to comply with the student dress standards in the same way that they are expected to comply with the rules relating to classroom behaviour, absences etc.

Policy Statement

Acceptance of enrolment at Lynwood Senior High School is an agreement between the parent/carer and the enrolling student, that the student will dress in accordance with the school’s uniform policy.  Every student is expected to comply with the School Uniform Policy.  Students are expected to be dressed in a neat and tidy manner at all times and ensure they have the appropriate clothing needs for any particular day.

Accepted school uniforms displaying the school logo are only available at Uniform Concepts, located on 30 Kembla Way, Willetton.  The uniform price list and order form are available from the school website.

School Uniform Bank

It is expected that every student will be in school uniform. Therefore, if for some reason a student cannot wear a uniform, they must borrow what they need from the uniform bank situated in the Library. If a staff member has directed a student to the library during class time, they should ensure that the student is accompanied, if possible.

Procedure to borrow from the school uniform bank is as follows:

  1. Before school starts, students check in to the Library and borrow the items they need. They leave their own clothing with the librarians to be collected on return of the borrowed item
  2. If a student is seen to be wearing inappropriate uniform after the commencement of Period 1, they will be asked to go to the uniform bank to change or remove the inappropriate item. This may impact on their Good Standing. If there is a major problem with a student’s dress standard, parents will be contacted by letter or telephone.  Students with on-going issues will be in breach of the Good Standing policy.
  3. At the end of Period 5, students are to return to the library to collect their own clothing after returning the borrowed item/s
  4. A student may negotiate a longer-term loan based on need
  5. All items in the Uniform Bank are laundered through professional launderers after each wearing
  6. If students fail to return the borrowed school uniform, they will be asked to replace them

Excursions

To ensure the safety of all students when attending school sanctioned excursions, it is school policy that only students in school uniform may attend; unless otherwise organised. Students out of uniform on the day of the excursion will remain at school with appropriate work.
