College Uniform Policy

As this half term draws to a close, I am writing to remind you of the details of our uniform policy to help you in providing the appropriate College Uniform for your son/daughter during the summer term. I have enclosed a separate information sheet that lists and illustrates our uniform requirements. All items are available locally or online from Esk Valley Embroidery.

Please note:

  • Uniform items (other than replacement ties) are not available from the College, but can be purchased from Esk Valley Embroidery.
  • Make-up – must be minimal and natural looking. No false eyelashes, excessive use of highlighter, eyeliner or bright lip colours.
  • Jewellery – students are allowed to wear one pair of stud earrings only, that are no bigger than a 5p piece. No facial piercings are allowed, specifically, nose, eyebrow or lip piercings. A watch may be worn (although I-watches or similar are not allowed when taking examinations or classroom tests). A single charity band is allowed. No rings, bracelets or necklaces are permitted on health and safety grounds.
  • Nails – nail varnish should be clear only. Coloured nail varnish, including nude colours, are not permitted. False nails, including French tips are also not permitted, again on health and safety grounds.

Failure to follow the above conditions will result in us contacting you and sanctions as per the College policy. Should you believe there to be a genuine reason for your son/daughter not to be wearing the correct College uniform, please contact Mr Bone (KS4) or Mrs Wood (KS3) in the first instance and they will discuss this matter with you.

As the country, school uniform provides students with a sense of community and local identity. We really appreciate your support in ensuring that all students attending Caedmon comply with our expectations.

Thank you for your continuing support.

Yours sincerely

Simon Riley
