Our pupils are ambassadors of the school and are expected to dress and behave in a way that reflects the standards we seek to achieve. It is vital that our students portray our school in the best possible light in the local community. Equally, we want our students to take pride in their own appearance, preparing them for their post-16 careers after their Belvidere journey.
Please support us in ensuring that your child always wears the correct uniform in line with our policy. We are fully aware that often due to unforeseen circumstances this cannot always occur, in these incidences, please can you supply your child with a note explaining any problems. Any child wearing incorrect uniform without a note of explanation, will be set a detention or may even be sent home to change.
For health and safety reasons trainers should not be worn and all shoes should be flat. Jewellery can be worn (apart from in PE lessons), which consists of one ring, watch and one pair of stud earrings. No other body piercings are allowed. Ear lobe stretchers, bars or multiple ear piercings are not permitted under any circumstances. If students decide to break this rule, then they will be asked to remove the additional items and persistent offenders may have them confiscated. Students should avoid extreme hairstyles and contact the school if they planning a new style and wish to seek advice. There are also specialist items for some subjects. Aprons are required for Art and Design and Technology, to protect the uniform from damage.
