School Uniform Policy

School Uniform Policy
Wearing the school uniform plays an important part in establishing a positive community identity and contributes to the creation of an appropriate work ethic. The benefits of a dress code include:
• Promoting safety of students through easier identification;
• Keeping costs of clothing within reasonable limits for parents;
• Assisting students to learn the importance of appropriate presentation.
Acceptance of enrolment at Lesmurdie Senior High School assumes an agreement between the parent/guardian 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.
The school uniform has been developed in consultation with the School Board and other members of the School Community.
Students are to wear the designated uniform during school hours, to and from school and while attending school excursions. 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 sport, dance or physical education classes, training sessions or competitions. Students who have Period 1 Physical Education or Dance classes MUST arrive in school uniform and then change at the start of Period 1. For Period 5 classes, students must change after lunch and then change back into school uniform at the end of the lesson.
It is the expectation that students will be dressed in uniforms that are neat and tidy at all times. Students should ascertain their clothing needs for any particular day and make the necessary arrangements. Where a student is unable to wear school uniform they should see the Deputy Principal before school to arrange to borrow a uniform.

Uniform Shop
The Uniform Shop is open from 8.15am to 10.00am every Tuesday morning during the term.

Consequences of Breaching the School Uniform Policy
• When a student is out of uniform, they will be asked to report to the relevant Year Deputy to change or remove the non uniform item, or have a parent/guardian contacted to deliver appropriate uniform items.
• The student can pick up the item at the end of the day. The name of the student will be recorded in case there are further breaches of this policy. Where a student out of school uniform refuses to remove and/or change uniform item/s the Deputy Principal, or delegate, will then determine the next steps to follow.
• A second breach of the School Uniform Policy will result in the non-uniform item being confiscated and stored as above and the student will be given a lunch detention.
• Repeated breaches of the School Uniform Policy will result in the same process as the second breach and parents may be contacted to collect the non-uniform item from the school.
