Change of Uniform Supplier – November 2021

From November 2021, we will be moving to a new school uniform supplier Your School Uniform. We will bring you more details nearer the time of how to order uniform via the new supplier.  

Your School Uniform is a specialist online retailer and offers good value and service. We will also be facilitating a pop-up shop event over the Summer when parents generally replace large amounts of uniform, for those who prefer the in-store shopping experience. There are price reductions in an online offering and so we hope that you will be pleased to see some significant saving as a result. Please be reassured there is no change in the uniform itself, just the supplier but you may notice some slight difference in the style/fabric. As part of the process of changing supplier we have tested/washed and tried the uniform as well as taken feedback from other schools about the supply and service.  

Friends of Theale have recently run a very successful second hand uniform sale. They have kindly agreed to run another sale when we have gathered enough uniform, so please do drop any second hand uniform into reception. It will be gratefully received.

Uniform checks

Uniform will be visually checked daily by tutors, class teachers and staff on duty. Parents of any student in violation of the uniform rules will be communicated with quickly with an expectation that they uniform will be corrected the next day. Failure to comply will result in the student working separately from others until the situation is resolved. 

Hair and make-up

Hair styles should not be extreme. This would include shaved hair below a grade two or hair dyed to a non-conventional colour.

Make up should be discreet and subtle. Specifically, students should not be wearing coloured eyeshadows, winged eyeliner, extensive contouring/highlighting. When a member of staff judges that make up is not discreet, students will be asked to remove it. Nail varnish, gel nails or nail extensions should not be worn to school. 

Jewellery

Students are permitted to wear discreet jewellery. Specifically, this means that students may wear one pair of stud earrings (with one being worn in each earlobe).
No other piercings are acceptable and students will be required to remove any other piercings. Bracelets and neck chains are also not permitted and students would also be required to remove them. Ear stretchers, facial piercings or body piercings are not allowed and students will be required to remove them.

Students may wear a traditional wristwatch to school. Students may not wear watches which allow communication with their mobile phone device. 

Any jewellery in excess of a watch and one pair of stud earrings will be confiscated and held at Main Reception until Friday at 3pm.

Trousers and skirts

Trousers must be tailored (not jeans style), plain black and not heavy cotton, chino or denim material. Trousers must not be skinny fitting and must cover the ankle. Girl’s trousers must be tailored or boot-cut style.

Skirts must be school regulation style (Banner Henley Black Skirt) e.g. with the double pleated front and knee length. We do not expect students to wear multiple pleated or excessively short skirts.

Shoes

School shoes should be : Black and leather (or leather like) traditional school shoes. They should not have noticeable branding. Trainer like shoes or boots or heels are not accepted. Please be aware that what shops define as ‘school shoes’ may not be acceptable. If in any doubt please consult with the school before making your purchase to avoid being asked to replace them.”

Mobile phones

Mobile phones should always be turned off and in bags. If a student is seen with a mobile phone we will confiscate, and parents will be contacted to arrange collection. Having no mobile phones during social times will allow students to focus on having conversations with their peers, becoming socially active and free from the worry of social media. This all promotes positive mental health.
