Coombes Girls School

Uniform

Our Uniform

Coombe Girls’ School has a strict uniform policy and we expect all parents and pupils to support this.  We feel that the uniform fosters the strong and inclusive sense of community cohesion which we value.

We expect the girls to maintain a high standard of dress and appearance at all times.  Uniform should be complete, kept tidy and fresh. We expect all pupils to be correctly dressed before they enter the building.

Please take a look at the letters attached below to see some of the recent minor changes made to the girls' school uniform.

Please familiarise yourself with the rules on mobile phones and nail varnish below.

Mobile Phones 

While we understand that mobile phones may be seen as necessary for personal safety, we do not expect to see or hear mobile phones, personal music systems, cameras or similar equipment whilst on school premises; if this happens they will be confiscated. During the school day pupils should keep these items in their lockers. We cannot take responsibility for any equipment if it is lost or stolen.

Mobile phones are not allowed to be used and must be switched off during school hours and kept in your daughter’s locker. Mobile phones and personal equipment, including headphones and earpieces should be turned off and placed inside lockers. Any electronic devices, including mobiles, seen by staff will be confiscated and a letter will be sent home.

We ask that if you need to contact your daughter urgently, please telephone the School.

Nail varnish 

It is not permitted for students to wear nail varnish or to have false nails. If your daughter’s nails are too long to work safely in a busy school environment, we will ask her to trim them. I would ask for your support in this as you will be the first line in making sure that this does not happen. If your daughter arrives at school having broken this rule, the following sanctions will be applied:

1st time- varnish/ nails to be removed - a letter will come home with your daughter and you will receive a text message.

2nd time- varnish/ nails to be removed and a 30 minute same day detention will be held. You will receive the same letter and a further text message. If, at this stage, your daughter fails to attend the detention, this will lead to a doubling of the sanction and further refusal will lead to serious sanctions of exclusion for defiance.

3rd time - varnish/ nails to be removed and a half day internal exclusion for defiance will be served. At this stage we would be asking you to come to school to meet with us and discuss how to avoid further sanctions.

4th time- varnish/ nails to be removed and a full day internal exclusion for defiance will be served.

5th time - varnish/ nails to be removed and a fixed term, external exclusion for defiance will be issued. There will be a formal reintegration meeting and your daughter’s future will be discussed.
