Shenley Brook End School

Uniform

School uniform is an important part of the ethos of Shenley Brook End school and all students are encouraged to take pride in their appearance and their association with the school at all times. School uniform should be worn to and from school as well as during the school day.

Uniform Girls and Boys
Hair
  • No extremes of fashion or unnatural hairstyles.
  • No use of unnatural hair colours.
Make-Up
  • Girls may wear make-up if it is discreet; no nail varnish, no acrylics or gels.
  • Excessive make-up and nail varnish that is not acceptable will have to be removed.
Jewellery
  • Jewellery should not be worn to school with the exception of a watch and one small stud or small hooped earring – one in each ear. 
  • Large hoops and ear stretchers are not permitted. 
Piercings
  • Only ear piercings are allowed. 
  • No other piercings including tongue, facial and nose piercings.
Blazers must be worn at all times when inside the school building.
We would prefer coats (worn over the blazer) to be a plain dark colour. They cannot be worn in the building, except during colder weather, as notified by the headteacher; they must not be worn in lessons.
During very wet and snowy weather students may wear boots to school.  They must bring their normal school shoes to change into once they are in the building.
Head Coverings
Head coverings which are allowed for religious purposes should reflect the nature of the overall school uniform and should be black in colour (white is permitted during the time of the summer uniform).
Summer Uniform
Students will be notified when they may wear the summer uniform, (usually from after the May half-term).  A plain white polo shirt (without logo) can be worn instead of a shirt and tie. If students are cold then the blazer should be worn over the polo shirt.  (A pullover on its own must not be worn without the blazer.)
In extreme hot weather the headteacher may authorise the boys to wear their school PE shorts. Notification will be announced on the school website and the plasma screens. This option is not available to the girls who already have the option to wear a school skirt.
Uniform Checks
There are regular uniform checks and students who are not in the regulation uniform and cannot arrange a change of uniform may be placed in isolation to work during the day and be set a detention.
Non-uniform items including jewellery that is not permitted may be confiscated.
